The Palm Village Retirement Community will host a blood drive on Jan 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The blood drives are hosted and held by the Palm View Retirement Community about four times per year. According to the California Blood Center, it is important to eat a good meal prior to donating blood, and it is highly encouraged for those who will be attending the blood drive to have an adequate meal before donating.
The public tours will be available starting at 11 a.m. Tours are held so donors will have the option to donate blood from 1 p.m. until 1:45 pm.
Lunch will be served to those who take a tour, in the Garden Room from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m. Those who choose to skip the tour and lunch will still be able to donate blood until 4 p.m. All donors must call Palm Village at (559) 638-6933 and make an appointment with Jeanette.
“We are hoping that the community will realize that there is a significant need for blood donations and participate in this opportunity.” said Jim Higbee, Executive Director for Palm Village. “We invite donors to tour our campus and enjoy a wonderful meal prepared by our own chef and also recognize that in addition to offering retirement homes, we have a high quality Health Care Center for our residents.”
