This Thursday, December 20th, marks the annual KCAL Holiday Blood Drive and it is time to prove once again that, as the Stu-man likes to say, “Rockers step up!”. We all get very busy around this time of year, and that is why it is so important that we help keep the blood supply up for those that desperately need it. Recent events have reminded us just how unpredictable that need can be. Please stop by one of the Lifestream locations through out the I.E. this Thursday and drop off a pint. Here’s a link to find the location nearest to you, or to make an appointment to make it even easier for you to donate. We’ll be kicking down a special KCAL Blood Drive T-shirt and a free meal at Bakers Drive Thru when you give the gift of life. Thanks!
