Blood drive location changed
Submitted By Jan Giovannini-Hill
In response to a request from the Red Cross, the location of Fremont Police Department's C.A.R.E. (Connect, Assist, Respond, Engage) unit's third annual blood drive on Saturday, October 2 has been moved to the Saddle Rack. Due to the extreme need for more donors in the Bay Area, a location that could accommodate a large turnout was necessary. This Blood Drive is being dedicated to the recovery of Officer Todd Young, shot in the line of duty on Friday, August 27 while serving a search warrant in Oakland.
Donate blood and give the gift of life. Donors with Type O blood are especially needed. All presenting donors will be entered in a drawing for locally donated raffle prizes. Those who are interested but unable to donate on this date, can go to any Alameda County Blood Bank event and ask that credit go to the Fremont Police Department.
Identification is required. To schedule your appointment, please sign up online now at www.redcrossblood.org or www.helpsavealife.org; the Sponsor Code is POLICE. Donations of food and raffle items are still being sought, please call (510) 790-6756 for pick-up of any donations.
