We'll be there from 9 am to 4 pm and would love to see you even if donating blood is not your thing. When I spoke with Cyndi our BCH Bloodmobile contact she let me know that we did a great job with the first drive and that she especially was impressed with the community's response and the connection demonstrated. I'm glad we were able to build on the previous drives and bring in some new donors as well. You can use this link to sign up online: halfpints.childrenshospital.org. Click the Donate Blood tab at the top left. In the first box enter WESTBFD. Click the WESTBFD drive link. Select appointment time. Thank you! - Pauline Sciarappa
