With Gov. Eric Holcomb’s stay-at-home order in effect, another round of cancellations and postponements have been announced.

The order is until 11:59 p.m. April 6, unless there’s a need for it to be extended.

The latest announcements include:

• American Red Cross announced that, due to new restrictions and space for social distancing requirements, they have to cancel their mobile blood drives at Mad Anthony's, Martin's and the YMCA.

To fill those voids, they are going to have a blood drive at the Center Lake Pavilion on March 30. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The April 14 blood drive at the Pavilion will go on as scheduled, from noon to 6 p.m.

Rapidly changing numbers of patients have caused rapidly changing regulations to be imposed.

• Beginning today, all 20 Martin’s Super Markets locations in Indiana and Michigan will be taking customer contributions to support their county’s United Way effort to respond to both short-term and long-term needs of individuals impacted by COVID-19. One hundred percent of the donations will aid local COVID-19 relief efforts and donations will be distributed to the United Way chapters weekly.

Cashiers will be able to ring up any amount that customers wish to donate. “Typically, stores would collect cash contributions in buckets at checkout lanes,” Simeri-McClellan explained, “but to curb the handling of those containers and cash, donations will be added to customers’ grocery purchase as requested.”

Online shoppers may donate via Martin’s “Groceries to Go” site https://martinsgroceriestogo.com when they place an order for pickup or delivery.

The branches included in the effort are: United Way of Cass County, United Way of Elkhart and LaGrange counties, United Way of Kosciusko County, United Way of Marshall County, United Way of Southwest Michigan and United Way of St. Joseph County.

Grace’s admissions office is offering live stream visit days and virtual visits with admissions counselors, faculty, coaches and students ambassadors at www.grace.edu/visit.
