Blood drive appointments now available for local charity

Blood drive appointments are now available to boost Christy's Legacy of Hope and Peyton's Pals, which hope to host one of Downriver's largest blood drives in 2014.

According to Karen DePriest of Christy's Legacy, a popular Taylor-based charity, the blood drive is scheduled for 1 to 6:45 p.m. Jan. 2, 2014.

The drive will be held in the fellowship hall of Beacon Baptist Church, 12721 Northline Road, Taylor. The church is located between Racho and Allen roads across from the Wayne County Community College District's Downriver Campus. For those participating, it is suggested that you park in the rear of the church and enter through the carport doors. Fellowship hall is straight ahead and to the left.
