The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host a community blood drive with Stanford Blood Center from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 27. All donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of ice cream at Baskin-Robbins. While walk-ins are welcome, appointments are encouraged and can be made by calling (888) 723-78931 or visiting stanfordbloodcenter.org. In preparation for their donation, donors are advised to eat well, stay hydrated and arrive with their donor ID. First time donors or returning donors without a donor ID card should bring a valid state-issued photo identification. Donors with all blood types are always welcomed and appreciated, but there’s always a special need for type O blood. O negative donors are universal donors, (meaning anyone can receive O- blood no matter their type,) and O- is often used for trauma and pediatric patients.
