FARMINTON — Franklin Memorial Hospital is hosting its annual winter blood drive on Friday, March 3, from noon to 6 p.m. in the Bass Room.

Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health. There is no upper age limit, and most medications and medical conditions do not prohibit someone from donating blood through the Red Cross. An ID is required.
