    The Steelville Presbyterian Church will be hosting its annual Harvest Festival Blood Drive on Tuesday, September 7. All eligible donors are encouraged to attend.

    The theme of Harvest Festival this year is a Star-Spangled Celebration and nothing could be more patriotic than giving of yourself to care for the lives of others. If you have any questions or want to make an appointment, please call or text drive organizer Janice McMillen at 573.578.3960 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    The drive will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. at the church, which is located at 211 N. First Street. The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
    Doners can download the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store, Google Play or text BLOODAPP to 90999 to schedule appointments, view your blood type and results of your mini-physical, and track your donations.
