FresYes is partnering with the Central California Blood Center once again to host our fifth annual FresYes blood drive on November 16th from 1 pm-4 pm! Over the past four blood drives we have donated over 250 pints of blood and this year our goal is to donate 100 in a single day!
Everyone who donates will receive a raffle ticket for a few amazing giveaways. Along with our raffle, we will provide snacks and drinks to keep everyone feeling like a million bucks throughout the drive. For those who are unable to donate blood but still want to give back, we are also hosting a canned food drive and encourage you to bring canned goods that will be donated to a local charity.
The Central California Blood Center opened its doors all the way back in April of 1953, with just a staff of 5 total people. The center never stopped growing, and has moved three different times, they currently call The Jenny Eller Donor Center home on Blythe and Herndon and have been there since 2009. Along with their new home, they also added a “bus barn” to house their mobile bloodmobiles. The bloodmobiles are amazing, they give the Central California Blood Center the ability to host drives anywhere, so without these bloodmobiles, we wouldn’t be having our drive right outside our office. Register here to reserve your spot and make sure to share with your friends and family!
