The American Red Cross has scheduled a pair of blood drives in Havelock for this month.
The first is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday at the Havelock Family Moose Center on East Main Street.
The second is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 26 at St. Paul Lutheran Church on U.S. 70 East in Havelock.
The Red Cross reports that all blood types are needed.
Blood donations, as is typical, decline during the summer months as donors take vacations or travel out of town, but the need for blood remains steady, according to the Red Cross.
