Lorrin Parks, an Oxford Academy senior has chosen an unusual task for her community service as she is partnering with the American Red Cross to help increase the blood supply for the area which is low now due to all the bad weather cancellations.  Lorrin is planning to attend Utica College to become an Occupational Therapist. Following a visit to one of her classes by the Red Cross,she was inspired to coordinate a blood drive.

Walk-ins are welcome, but if you would like to make an appointment go online or call 1-800-RED CROSS.

The blood drive will be held from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Fort Hill American Legion Post 376, 17 South Washington Avenue in Oxford.
