It's the season of giving, and you can help your neighbors in need by participating in the Baldwin EMC Power of Giving drive.
The blood drive is November 29, 2018 from 8:00am-5:00pm at Baldwin EMC's training center, located just behind the headquarters office building at 19600 Highway 59 in Summerdale, AL. Each pint of blood donated can save up to three lives. Donors need to be at least 17 years old, weigh no less than 110 pounds, in generally good health and have not donated blood in the past 8 weeks. Donors should also be ready to present a valid form of I.D. All blood types are needed and first-time donors are welcome. The blood drive is in conjunction with LifeSouth Community Blood Center. Blood donors are also entered in a prize drawing for a $100 gift card or an electric grill.
The second part to Power of Giving is the coat and food drive. You can donate coats and non-perishable foods from now until November 29, 2018. You're asked to donate new or gently used coats that will go to kids in need. Drop off coats at any Baldwin EMC office- in Summerdale, Bay Minette or Orange Beach. The non-perishable food items will be donated to local charities and will go to families in need.
