Blood drive next Tuesday

The Westbrook Knights of Columbus Council 2219 is sponsoring an American Red Cross blood donation opportunity from 1 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, at the Community Center.

It’s the first Knights sponsored blood drive in more than a year due to Red Cross staffing shortages, according to Knights member Russ Champagne in an announcement.
