    Glen Meadow Middle School will host a blood drive from 3-9 p.m. on Friday, May 16, from 3-9 p.m.
    Blood products have a short shelf life - from five to 42 days, so constant replenishment is necessary. Each day there are patients who depend on the transfusion of red blood cells, platelets and plasma to stay alive. But blood and blood products can't be manufactured. They can only come from volunteer blood donors who take an hour to attend a blood drive or visit a donor center.
