The American Red Cross will host a blood drive 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3 at the First Baptist Church, 601 Main St., Bennington. Blood drives cancelled during the pandemic have increased the need for donors. Red Cross staff, volunteers, and donors will be masked and observe social distancing to the greatest extent possible. To make an appointment to donate, visit, call 800-RED CROSS, or text bloodapp to 90999 to download the app to your smartphone. As always, walk-ins will be accommodated as well. Questions? Contact Susan Gallina at 802-447-5345.
