Prestonwood Baptist Church is teaming up with Carter Blood Care to host a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The blood drive will benefit local hospitals in need of blood amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"At this time of increased demand when donations have fallen off due to COVID-19, our national and local blood supplies are in great need. As a church, we want to respond to this need and are calling everybody who is able to donate to come help our local hospitals," said executive pastor Mike Buster.
