VFW Post 399 completed our 28th monthly blood drive on Wednesday, October 12th with over 51 blood units collected. A recent decline in blood donations may soon make it tough to keep blood products stocked on hospital shelves. One pint of blood can save up to three lives. Our next blood drive is scheduled on Wednesday, Nov 16th between 8:30am – 6:00 pm. For an appointment, please visit – Use sponsor code: VFWWestport or call 1-800-733-2767.
