Vacations and summer activities often result in a decline in blood donations during the summer. Thatâ€™s why Saline Memorial Hospital has partnered with the American Red Cross for the â€ś100 Days of Summer, 100 Days of Hopeâ€ť Campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to increase blood donations during the summer months.
SMH is hosting a blood drive on Monday, June 9, in the SMH Health Education Building-Classroom 1.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A Saline County man has been charged with his fourth driving while intoxicated offense and his bond was set at $250,000.

He was booked into the Saline County Detention Center for driving while intoxicated, fourth offense, careless and prohibited driving and driving on a suspended driverâ€™s license, said Saline County Prosecuting Attorney Ken Casady.
The Benton and Bryant police departments and Everett Buick GMC are participating in a summer cereal drive that is sponsored by THV11 and the Arkansas FoodBank.
