Sonora, CA — Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
The third annual Heroes Day In The Foothills is coming up on Tuesday. The community wide blood drive hosted by Clarke Broadcasting will take place from 11am to 6pm at the Blood Bank of Sonora on Sanguinetti Road.
Donors are asked to eat a good breakfast and drink plenty of fluids ahead of time. You should also bring a valid ID.
Statistics show that 25% or more of us will require blood at least once in our lifetime. Only 5% of eligible donors across the nation donate blood, but the number of transfusions nationwide increases by 9% every year.
