Ridgefield Supply, Red Cross team up for blood drive Saturday, Oct. 14

On Saturday, Oct. 14, the American Red Cross will host a blood drive at Ridgefield Supply from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"With the world's most recent events — Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria and the devastating shooting in Las Vegas, it is important to be able to take a step back, think globally and give blood in order to ensure a diverse blood supply for patients in need," a press release said. "A simple gift can go a long way.

Donors and customers are welcome to enjoy a "Baked with Care" bake sale during the blood drive which will benefit Kids for Kids.
