SOMERS, N.Y. -- The Somers Women's Club will hold its annual blood drive Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. at the Somers Intermediate School cafeteria at 240 Route 202.

The drive is also collecting whole blood. The waiting period between donations is 56 days for whole blood and 112 days for double red cell donations.
Walk-ins are welcome. Photo or signature identification is required. Donors younger than 17 must have parental consent. Eat and drink well before donating. The blood drive does not cancel due to bad weather.
