Sonora, CA — Plenty of you stepped up to help others by giving blood. The fifth annual Clarke Broadcasting Heroes Day in the Foothills Blood Drive was today. Organizers say 117 people come through the Blood Bank doors on Sanguinetti Road between 11- 6 pm. They rolled up their sleeves and gave blood that could very well save a life.
