You never know if or when you will be needing blood one day… So, pay it forward by DONATING BLOOD on Saturday, October 1st, from 10am to 4pm, at the Granada Hills Recreation Center (corner of Petit and Chatsworth St.) or at the North Valley Youth Sports Complex (just north of Woodley and Balboa, behind the DWP. Both locations are in Granada Hills and sponsored by the Granada Hills Rotary Club.
Many people depend on the life-saving availability of blood, for an operation or for on-going treatments. That blood comes from the kindness of volunteer donors all over the country. The need is so great that sometimes blood banks run dangerously short. And blood is expensive, costing hospitals more than $350 per pint. Luckily, healthy people can donate blood without any harm to themselves, as their bodies replace that blood within a couple of weeks. Repeat donors can donate every 56 days.
All blood donors will receive a free t-shirt, a free pancake breakfast (or lunch), a free Baskin-Robbins ice cream coupon and a free raffle ticket. The raffle grand prize will be a ride for two aboard the Goodyear Airship, and many other prizes! Hope to see you there!
