For Immediate Release
December 20, 2013
MATHER, CA – KCRA 3 and BloodSource ring in the New Year with the annual KCRA 3 Blood Drive for Life including marrow registry. The blood drive will take place at four locations in Roseville, Modesto, Stockton and Sacramento. It's a great opportunity to make good on those noble New Year's resolutions made just a few days ago and what's nobler than helping to save lives? Start the New Year in high fashion with a special edition T-shirt along with MyBloodSource Rewards. Blood drive participants will also receive one ticket to the 2014 International Sportsmen's Exposition in Sacramento (January 9 – 12, 2014) while supplies last. Marrow registry will be offered at no cost to people ages 18 to 44.
The need for blood recognizes no season or date on the calendar. With less than 10% of people donating blood and many regular donors traveling, on vacation, or down with cold or flu symptoms, it’s important for new blood donors or infrequent blood donors to donate at this time. Join us to save lives at any of the following locations:
