Local Blood Drive at the Maple Valley Farmer’s Market – Saturday August 25thAugust 22nd, 2012 at Wed, 22nd, 2012 at 10:25 am by Larry Baumgart
The Cascade Regional Blood Services will have their bloodmobile at the Maple Valley Farmers’ Market on Saturday August 25th, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Cascade Regional Blood Services mission is “To provide constant, safe, cost-effective supply of blood, blood components and other related services to the communities we serve”. Everyone Has It, Everyone Needs It and there’s no substitute for blood. If people lose blood from surgery or injury or if their bodies can’t produce enough, there is only one place to turn – volunteer blood doners.
The Maple Valley Farmers’ Market is proud to be a 2012 blood drive sponsor and encourages everyone to donate blood. Farmers’ Market Manager Victoria Laise Jonas notes “Everyone who donates blood at the Farmers’ Market will receive a free piece of locally grown fruit! This is our way of saying thank you to all of the blood doners who take time to give the gift of life –life saving blood to patients in need.” Before you donate, be sure to eat well, drink plenty of non-caffeinated fluids and bring picture ID. Please contact CRBS at 1-877-24-BLOOD to sign up. And lastly, encourage a friend to donate with you!
