MENDOTA — The Mendota Sweet Corn Festival will host a bloodmobile from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 10.

The bloodmobile will be located on Indiana Avenue, downtown, across the street from the Elks Club craft show area.

To make an appointment, call 800-RED CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification, are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
