The community is invited to participate in a blood drive on Thursday at the Sierra Madre Community Recreation Center.
The event, which is co-hosted by the Sierra Madre Community Services Department and American Red Cross, will be held from noon to 6 p.m. on Dec. 20, 2012 at 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.
It is open to the public and participants must be:
- 17 years of age or older
- weigh at least 110 pounds
- in general good health
Donors will receive Subway sandwiches plus a coupon from Cold Stone Creamery as a show of thanks from the American Red Cross.
"With the recent Tropical Storm Sandy blood donations are needed more than ever and what better time than the holidays to donate," a city-issued statement read.
To schedule an appointment, please visit www.redcrossblood.org or contact the Community Services Department at (626) 355-7394. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are encouraged.
