The Dixon drive will be from 1 to 6 p.m. at Dixon Church of the Brethren, 215 N. Court., and the Tampico drive from 2 to 7 p.m. at Tampico United Methodist Church, 202 Lincoln St.
All blood types are needed. Anyone who gives blood or platelets through Sept. 30 will receive a coupon for a free haircut at participating Sport Clips locations. Go to redcrossblood.org/sport-clips for more information.
