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.”
Protect Our Storm Drains!
Litter isn’t just an eyesore; it also pollutes! Rain and wind can carry plastic bags, food wrappers, and paper cups into storm drains polluting our creeks and the Bay. Pick up trash whenever you see it. For more information follow us on Facebook or visit BayWise.org.
