St. Vincent de Paul to host Community Blood Drive; Gifts for Donors
Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary and help save a life? And, who knows? The life you save could be a family member, a friend or even yourself one day.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will host a Community Blood Drive from 12-6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16 at the Society’s store at 210 N. Avenue 21 in Los Angeles. Participants will not only have the opportunity to win FREE ‘Gas for a Year, but a donor will be selected randomly every day in August to win a $50 gas gift card. In addition, blood donors will receive two complimentary VIP tickets to the Laugh Factory and a voucher for two Chivas USA soccer tickets. (Note – Identification is required to donate blood, and there is a $10 total processing fee for the Chivas tickets).
Make your life-saving appointment by visiting www.redcrossblood.org and enter the word StVincentdePaulLA in the Sponsor Code box, or call St. Vincent de Paul at 323-224-6286.
