Rotary Blood Drive
There is a dire need for blood donations, so the Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps and the San Diego Blood Bank will hold a blood drive on Aug. 24, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the old Vons parking lot at 10016 Scripps Ranch Blvd. The public is invited to participate by scheduling an appointment at sandiegobloodbank.org/donate or by calling (619) 400-8251. Appointments are mandatory and donors will need to bring a photo ID. Efforts from this blood drive aid the San Diego Blood Bank which must collect more than 350 units of blood each day to meet the needs of patients.
