A Team Jack Blood Drive was hosted June 10 and 11 at the O'Neill Knights of Columbus Hall. 

There is still time to donate. Another blood drive will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 19 at the Stuart City Audtorium, 204 Parnell St. To make an appointment please call Abby at (402) 924-3041 or Donna at (402) 924-3469 or visit

The Team Jack Blood Drive comes at an important time for the Red Cross. Historically, during the summer months of June, July and August about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need. But, this seasonal challenge can be overcome two generous donors at a time, at every blood drive, every day.

How To Donate Blood

Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or drivers license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
