I love what our neighbors do for the community and the annual blood drive on 38th Street is a perfect example. I don’t know how many years I’ve participated but I look forward to giving a pint every year for such a good cause. I hope to see many of my neighbors there this year.
Here is the email I received from the organizers.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We like to think the 38th Street Blood Drive is a party, and we hope you’ll consider joining us. We’ll have tents and tables on the front lawn, and two bloodmobiles parked on the street. As usual, we’ll be grilling sausages and pouring our favorite beverages.
This is our eleventh annual drive. It is the longest running neighborhood blood drive in Sacramento. It occurs Thursday, October 3rd, from 3:00-7:00. To schedule an appointment, please go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M597. If you prefer, please call us at 916-451-5507 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred time and I’ll schedule an appointment for you. If you have any friends who would like to donate, we’d be happy to schedule them as well. Anyone 17 or older can donate. Those who are 16 can donate with parental permission, using a form available on the bloodsource.org website. Please remember to bring a photo id and drink plenty of fluids beforehand. If you have any questions about eligibility, please call 800-995-4420 and ask for the “Nurse of the Day”. If possible, please make an appointment so we have no gridlock and we know how many folks to expect. We look forward to seeing you and having a good time.
We are honored and touched that you continue to support this very worthwhile cause. We do this in memory of my wonderful mom, Rosemary Lonczak, who lived years longer as a result of numerous blood transfusions.
