You don't have to drive to Delaware to donate blood.
Cecil County Government is hosting a blood drive on October 6 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Blood Bank of Delmarva staff will be on site. You may schedule your donation appointment at www.delmarvablood.org or call 1-888-BLOOD8.
That blood drive is part of the 2016 Wellness Fair for county employees. That event will be held from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the County Administration Building where donors will also be giving blood.
A part of the wellness event, mobile Biometric screenings will be provided at the wastewater plant in Perryville, the Cecil County Detention Center, the County Administration Building, Cecil County Circuit Court, Solid Waste and Roads Division, and at Cecil Sheriff's Office/Department of Emergency Services.
A Biometric screening will measure the physical characteristics of county staff - height, weight, blood pressure, body mass index, cholesterol, glucose, and more.
County staff will also be able to schedule flu shots.
