Join KSBY and Vitalant for the Be a Hero blood drive on Wednesday, August 31! Two opportunities to donate: in San Luis Obispo at the KSBY TV Station in the bloodmobile or in Santa Maria at the Vitalant Donation Center, both locations from 1pm to 7pm. Your donation will help ensure blood is available for vulnerable patients through the Labor Day holiday weekend, a time when donations dip due to family gatherings and travel. It's the blood on the shelves that saves lives.
Because of You, Life Doesn't Stop.
All donors will receive:
- Tacos, chips and salsa from Taqueria 805 taco truck, which will be on-site the day of the blood drive at each donation location.
- Blood donor T-shirt
- Donors who give blood through Sept. 7, 2023, will also receive enough bonus points in their online donor accounts to redeem for a cool summer $10 gift card through Vitalant’s donor recognition program. Donor must first have an account and be opted in to the recognition program prior to donating to receive points. For more information, visit vitalant.org/coolsummerbonus.
