The Wood River Methodist Church is scheduled to host a bloodmobile on Tuesday, April 14, from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. As of Sunday, there are a total of 21 slots to fill, not counting those who will not be able to keep appointments due to illness, work and other commitments. In addition to the usual single donation stations there will be two double machines that will be available for those who would like to give doubles.
