Blood Drive Participants Can Also Abate Hunger in Our Community

Local nonprofit Vitalant will be holding a blood drive on Tuesday, January 28th from 12PM to 6PM at the Brentwood Library Community Room. In addition to helping to ensure that hospitals and clinics retain sufficient supplies of blood to provide life saving transfusions, participants will also be aiding local families that are struggling to put food on the table. On behalf of each donor, the Blood Science Foundation will provide healthy meals to the Brentwood Community Food Bank. To protect the safety of both donors and staff, interested individuals are asked to register in advance by dialing 412-209-7000 or by visiting www.vitaliant.com.
