BISHOP COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

BISHOP COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

The Bishop community can save lives during the Bishop Community Blood Drive at the Elks Lodge from Tuesday, Nov. 15 – Wednesday, Nov. 16. All blood drive participants will receive “Hero in Me” Donor Rewards points, redeemable for thank-you gifts in the only Hero Rewards store, such as a $10.00 Amazon gift card worth 800 points to be redeemed in our Rewards Store. Normally a donor receives 100 points for making an appointment and 100 for donating = 200 points. In November, each donor will receive 800 points to shop in our Rewards Store. 800 points can get the $10.00 Amazon gift card, a free movie ticket for 500 points etc.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. The holiday season is typically a challenging time of year to collect blood due to a variety of factors including the cold and flu season, busy schedules for regular donors, and an increase in hospital demand for blood combined with a decrease in blood donations.
Appointments are recommended, and donors can schedule their appointment by visiting BloodHero.com, selecting “Locate a blood drive”, and using sponsor code: Bishop, or calling 760-920-3281. Donors must bring a photo ID. Walk-ins are welcome.
