In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Vitalant is partnering with NewsChannel to host blood drives at the San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara Vitalant locations. King's commitment to social justice, equality, and service is why we continue to recognize his humanitarian impact on this day.

I believe the idea that my blood could help save a life is so amazing. Even though I am not a trained medical professional, I can still make a positive impact on others.
