July 26, 2011 · Updated 3:42 PM
Puget Sound Blood Center staff will be in Buckley for a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. Aug. 10 at Buckley Eagles Club, 29021 State Route 410 E. in Buckley.
For an appointment, call Ron Holmes at 360-829-1151 or attend as a walk-in donor.
The drive is sponsored by the Buckley Eagles.
The Blood Center staff is emphasizing the need for donations during the summer months. Blood collections are down 20 percent due to vacations and high school holiday breaks. Yet, the demand for blood increases 20 percent during summertime due to people being more active and, therefore, having more accidents.
