Red Cross blood drive in Pleasanton tomorrow

Red Cross working to prevent summer shortage

To help prevent a summer blood shortage, the American Red Cross is holding blood drives throughout the Bay Area, including one tomorrow in Pleasanton.

Blood donations typically decline during the summer months, especially after the Independence Day holiday, a Red Cross spokesman said.

Local donations can be made from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-

day Saints, 6001 Paseo Santa Cruz, in Pleasanton.

Donors can drop in or register at (use donor code "InterfaithCommunity") or call 1-800-REDCROSS to make an appointment.
