Save Money Save Lives- we are looking for 55 volunteers to donate blood on 6/17

We have been hard at work the past few weeks planning a giveback event SAVE LIVES SAVE MONEY on June 17 9am-3pm at Stevens Henager College in Nampa.

We have a goal to get 55 volunteers to donate blood to the American Red Cross, a blood drive being held in honor of my son Matthew.

Over the years little Matthew has been the recipient of the life saving gift of blood, that was selflessly given by a total stranger…but saved his life! To read more about his heart click here.

Matt has never given blood. Even though he is a nurse he is scared of needles. But he will there with a needle in his arm too!

You will need to pre-register by calling 208-467-0501 then hit the * key…. call to reserve your spot today.

Calls will be taken till 5pm today (6/3), 9am -2pm on Saturday 6/4 and from 8am-8pm on Monday – Thursday 6/6-6/9

We hope to fill this blood drive within 24 hours.

Date: Friday, June 17
