Blood donation time |

Blood donation time

The Blood Source, with their air-conditioned mobile vans, will be in the Kmart parking lot Thursday, Aug. 26, from noon till 6 p.m. Baskin Robbins will again donate a pint of their great ice cream to the donor of each pint of blood. Their store is in the parking lot.

Many people are on vacations during the summer, so it is up to the rest of us to take up the slack in blood donations. You can never predict when we will need a lot of it.

If you weight over 110 pounds, are over 17 years of age (16 with parents written permission), and are in good health, please come and donate a pint. Bring photo identification. The teal green (formerly Pink Ladies) from Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital will be there with their cookies and cold liquid refreshments. See you there.
