There will be a blood drive in Vandalia today, and the American Red Cross says there is a major need for blood donations at this time. Because of winter weather around the country, many blood drives have had to be canceled. And, that means there is a desperate need for donors at this time. The Blood Drive will be held on today from 12 pm to 6 pm at the Vandalia Moose Lodge at 328 South 3rd Street. The event is sponsored by the Vandalia Rotary Club.
