Mathews blood drive to be held April 19

An American Red Cross blood drive will be held on Tuesday, April 19, at the Piankatank Ruritan Club building in Hudgins.

The drive, sponsored by Macedonia Baptist Church, will be held from 1:30 to 7 p.m. For an appointment, visit

While the drive is primarily appointment-only, when someone doesn’t show up for an appointment, they are able to take walk-ins as space permits, according to volunteer Nan Cross. However, the best way to ensure a spot is to make an appointment online. “The pandemic really moved us to an appointment system and it’s an improvement overall,” Cross said. For more information about the upcoming drive, call at 804-725-2485.
