Blood Drive Sponsored by The Rotary Clubs of Escondido
The Escondido Rotary Clubs will again be participating in a blood drive on Thursday - Saturday, October 27, 28, & 29. Our donations will be credited to any Rotarian in need of blood from our Escondido clubs, or their family members. Those of you that are regular blood donors, remember that August 31 was the last day to donate blood in order to be eligible to join your fellow Rotarians donating blood on October 27-29. Donor center: 358 W. El Norte Pkwy. SuiteJ, just a few shops down from IHOP on El Norte. Hours: Thursday 10 am to 6 pm. Friday & Saturday 8 am to 4 pm.
The San Diego Blood Bank Blood Donation Tips.
- Get a good night’s sleep.
- Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before donation (coffee & tea don’t count).
- Eat a healthy meal before your donation (low fat foods, iron rich foods).
The demand for blood is constant but the supply is not. There is no substitute only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives.
Thank you in advance for your Service Above Self,
Community Service Director
