Every 2-to-3 seconds in this country, someone needs blood. And you never know when you or someone you love will be the one. We all expect blood to be available when we need it, but only a few of those who can give actually roll up their sleeves. It's time for you to roll up your sleeve and donate for the good of your community.

It takes 48 to 72 hours to process, test, prepare and ship blood once it's donated. So it is the blood already on hospital shelves that saves lives. That's why it's crucial we constantly replenish the supply so that we're ready for all situations.

Coats for Kits
The Silver City Police Department is starting the drive for Coats for Kids. This year we would like to finish the drive by November 30, 2017, so we can get the coats distributed during the first week in December. The community has been very generous in the past in providing coats for our area kids. The coats will be distributed to the local area schools for children in need.

Also, we will be accepting gloves/mittens and beanies for the children.

The Silver City Woman's Club will have its monthly meeting on the 2nd Friday of each month at 10:30; the location is 411 Silver Heights Blvd.

Please save the date. You are welcome to attend our monthly member's meeting. Call Lucinda at 575-313-4591 for additional information.
