Blood Drive Kenwood


Kenwood Fire Station

Wednesday December 17th 2008 - 4:00pm to 7:00pm

The Blood Bank of the Redwoods comes to Kenwood and Glen Ellen on Wednesday, Dec. 17.

In Glen Ellen, the drive will take place between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. at the Glen Ellen Fire Station on Arnold Dr. In Kenwood, you can give blood between 4 and 7 p.m. at the Kenwood Fire Station on Randolph Ave.

To be a blood donor you must be 16 years of age or older, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and free of cold or flu symptoms.

The donation process includes registration, a brief medical screening, blood collection, and refreshments. The whole process takes about an hour. It is recommended you eat before donating, and itís a good idea to drink plenty of fluids before and after donating.

Giving blood helps save lives. Every three seconds, someone needs blood in the United States, and one out of four people entering a hospital needs blood. There is no substitute for human blood.

Sign up to donate by calling the Blood Bank of the Redwoods at 545-1222. For more information about donating blood and the Blood Bank of the Redwoods, go to www.bbr.org.
