Blood supplies can dwindle during the summer months, when regular donors are away on vacation or are preoccupied with other summertime activities. At the same time, the need for blood can rise as increased roadway and travel-related injuries can drain supplies.
All Red Cross blood donor centers will be open July 4, including in Pleasant Hill at 140 Gregory Lane and in Pleasanton at 5556-B Springdale Ave. To schedule an appointment, call 800-GIVE-LIFE (800-448-3543) or visit online at HelpSaveALife.org.
