Rancho Murieta Women’s Club will conduct its quarterly community Blood Drive on Monday, January 25th at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 14673 Cantova Way. The hours are from Noon to 6:00 p.m. You can donate whole blood or platelets and potential marrow donors can register for “Be the Match” through BloodSource. You may also donate platelets on the 2nd Monday of each month.
To give blood, you must be in generally good health, free from cold symptoms for at least 48 hours, at least 17 years old (16 years old with parental consent) and weigh at least 110 pounds. There is no upper age limit for donating blood. Prospective donors must bring a photo ID and should eat and drink before donating. The entire process takes about an hour.
All participants will receive a coupon for 20% off a purchase at Buona Vita Yogurt & Gelato and will be entered into a drawing for a handmade quilt by Gloria Murtaugh! Walk-ins are welcome, childcare is available and homemade cookies are provided. We welcome our faithful returnees and new donors also.
