Here’s What’s Going On In The Community
You’ll always remember your first best friend, your first moments of independence, and your first taste of s’mores cooked over an open fire. It was all at camp and you can’t wait for your kids to experience it. But going to camp sometimes isn't an option for the kids who could possibly use it most: California’s nearly 60,000 foster kids. Doesn’t every child deserve to go to camp? With your help, they can. 102.9 KBLX and Sleep Train present: Camp Sweet Dreams. Grant a foster child’s dream for as little as $10

Blood Centers of the Pacific - O Negative Blood Shortage
“Everybody knows that donating blood is the easiest way there is to save lives. But did you know there is a blood shortage going on in Northern California right now – especially of O Negative blood. In a life or death emergency often there is no time to find out what blood type the accident victims are, so the only blood they can be given in those first critical moments is O Negative – the universal donor. Please, donate blood this week. Visit www.bloodcenters.org , find a drive near you, and be a lifesaver. Blood Centers of the Pacific gratefully accepts all blood types.”
Second Start Can Help
