SIDNEY — Ron and Nita’s Shoe & Clothing Store in Sidney is joining the Community Blood Center “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign by hosting a community blood drive Saturday, June 17, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The CBC Bloodmobile will be at 134 S. Main St.

Donors can enter a drawing to win a new pair of athletic shoes. The blood drive coincides with Ron and Nita’s annual sidewalk cook-out lunch.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Giving Blood, Saving Lives, That’s How I Roll! Donate Blood” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 800-388-GIVE.
