American Red Cross officials across Southeast Missouri are working to boost the supply of blood available. Delores Appleton was among the first to file in to the blood drive under way at the Sikeston Factory Outlet Stores on Thursday. Assisting her is Sharon Mayfield, a phlebotomist with the Red Cross. The blood drive will continue at the Outlet Stores until 7 p.m. today and again from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Also area residents can donate blood at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles at 13583 Old Highway 25 in Dexter during those same hours.
