The Southwest Washington Blood Program encourages you to give blood twice this summer—blood which will be used for hospitals in our own community. After giving blood, most people need to wait only 56 days before giving blood again. If you give twice this summer and fall, you’ll receive a gift certificate for a Give Twice Cookbook as a thank-you. The Southwest Washington Blood Program will be hosting three blood drives in July and August:
- Saturday, July 5, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Meadow Glade SDA Church, 11011 N.E. 189th St.
- Wednesday, July 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Battle Ground Community Center, 912 E. Main St.
- Friday, Aug. 11, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Battle Ground Albertsons, 2108 W. Main St.
Walk-ins are welcome, but if you prefer to make an appointment, call 1-800-398-7888. You can also sign up online and view all information about local blood drives at www.psbc.org/drives.
