Tom Hinman of the Red Cross says "So what we need folks to recognize is oh I can take an hour I can go to redcrossblood.org type in my zip code. Find the most convenient blood drive for myself and go and donate."

The Bangor Blood Donor Center on Hammond Street will be open June 12th from 11 to 6 and Sea Dog Brewing Company in Bangor will host a blood drive from 1 to 6 p-m.

Donors at Sea Dog will get a 5-dollar certificate for food.
