Your Benton American Legion Post 280 & VFW Post 2671 will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive from 2pm until 6pm on Thursday, January 2nd 2020.  Due to increased travel during the holiday season, more accidents occur on our roadways.  These accidents lead to an increase in demand for blood donations.  We are asking everyone to please come and participate.  This is open to the public and EVERYONE is invited to come and be a part of this live saving event.  Donating blood costs no money.  All you have to give is a little of your time.  Isn't a little bit of time out of your day, when so many people are off work anyway, worth the effort to come up and potentially save someone's life?  We think so.  Thank you for your support.
