Community blood drive at Blake’s

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 | Posted by

 

Blake’s Auto Body is holding a community blood drive on Thursday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at their Rohnert Park shop.

“Blake’s Auto Body encourages its employees and customers to give the gift of life,” said owner Blake Andros. “Our company philosophy is one of giving in every way we can and oftentimes this means more than cash donations. It is caring about those who have medical needs, especially in times of crisi. Giving blood can save lives.”

Anyone who donates blood will be entered in a drawing to win a $250 value auto detail from Blake’s Auto Body. Michael’s Sourdough and Driven Raceway are also including gift certificates as prizes.

The blood mobile will be parked out in front of Blake’s Rohnert Park shop, located at 5500 State Farm Drive. You can make an appointment online at www.bloodsource.org/drives or call 584-4188. A photo id will be required and anyone donating blood is encouraged to eat and drink something prior to their appointment.

According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and more than 44,000 blood donations are needed every day.
