Portola blood drive looking for volunteers
Did you know that every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood? Also one in seven people entering the hospital will need blood. Making a blood donation is quite easy. To think that the few minutes one gives up to donate blood will help someone is truly an awesome feeling.
The Portola blood drive is scheduled Friday, Oct. 11, from 2 to 6 p.m., at the Catholic Community Hall, 100 South Pine St., in Portola.
The Eastern Plumas Hospital Auxiliary is sponsoring this blood drive in coordination with Vitalent out of Reno.
If you can, please make a donation. Also you can spread the word and encourage others to donate. To make an appointment, visit www.BloodHero.com. Walk in slots are also available. For more information or questions answered, contact Pandora Valle at 832-0347.
