Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by Giving the Gift of Life
At Houchin Community Blood Bank St. Patrick’s Day is not about sharing a green beer, it’s about sharing blood. To encourage blood donations and safe celebrations of the day, Granite Construction Company is providing a Pot o’ Gold of 100 prizes. Pot o’ Gold prizes include merchandise certificates, gift cards and lottery tickets. Each donor will be eligible to pick an envelope from the prize stash between 9:00 am and 8:00 pm at 5901 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield, while supplies last. Negative blood types and established platelet donors are in particular need at this time to maintain ready supplies. A- donors are the greatest need. Appointments can be made by calling 661-323-4222 or at www.hcbb.com, but walk-ins are welcome. All donors are encouraged to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the blood bank, where the “lucky leprechaun juice” will flow freely.
