Sparta Community Hospital is celebrating American Red Cross month, by hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on Friday, September 23.

The September 23, blood drive will take place at the Sparta Community Hospital Broadway Plaza, Auxiliary Room A, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Plus, when you come in to donate September 19-September 30, you will be entered for a chance to win a VIP NASCAR experience, including two tickets to a 2023 race!

In effort to keep donors and workers safe, donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive.

To make an appointment to donate, visit, or contact Jennifer Barbour at 618-443-1467.
