Give Blood, Save a Life (and get a free meal!)

It’s really not as gruesome as it sounds.  Come down for lunch today and give blood, then enjoy some grub and drinks courtesy of the American Legion, located at 215 15th St on Balboa Peninsula, between 10am and 4pm.

Aside from actually saving peoples lives, there are some really great selfish reasons for giving blood, too! As the weather heats up, giving blood will help make you feel cooler, by removing some of the iron in your blood– making the sun feel that much better!  If you bleed thick blood, giving blood is also said to reduce your chances of having a life-threatening blood clot.

Besides… there are free cookies here, people.  Give some blood, save a life, and earn yourself a cookie!
