First UU will sponsor another blood drive from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm on Sunday, August 1st. In the past, the Blood Center has followed strict safety protocols and required appointments. The August Blood Drive will, likewise, follow safety guidelines that are in place at the time of the drive. Check back here closer to August for the current guidelines and appointment link.
