Donors of all blood types are needed this spring.  Make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).  Upcoming St. Clair County blood drives include: Port Huron 4/5/2017: 7:15 a.m.1 p.m., Lake Huron Medical Center, 2601 Electric Ave -and 4/13/2017: 10 a.m. – 3:45 p.m., St. Clair County Community College, 323 Erie Street  4/6/2017: 2 p.m. – 7:45 p.m., Our Lady of Mt Carmel Hall, 10828 Brandon Road in Emmett Township
