Red Cross Open House Tuesday 

The Red Cross in Bangor has a new way to collect much-needed plasma and platelets and there will be an open house Tuesday to show it off. It’s from 10:00 -11:00 Tuesday morning at the Red Cross offices on Hammond Street.They’ve had the new equipment for a few months now and say they’re ready to go now after training with it and working out all the kinks. Trudy Darling is an Account Executive at the Red Cross and she says they’re anxious to unveil this new method. “So we’re really excited about introducing this and what this is going to do is it’s going to position us better to supply the hospitals with what they need for blood and blood products so we’re really excited about that.”
