There’s a blood drive today and tomorrow at Scenic Mountain Medical Center from 9 AM to 1 PM.
"Right now the blood supply is low," said Amanda Duforat, SMMC Marketing Manger. "[During] the holidays it's even more important to give because a lot of people are gonna be traveling. As most of us know, that usually means more accidents and more things can happen and so we just need to be prepared, and what better way than to take a little bit of time and donate a pint of blood. With it being Thanksgiving, if you donate a pint of blood you're actually going to get a voucher for a free turkey."
Donors will receive a $10 H-E-B gift card and Sonic Coupon. Those who donate 2 pints will also receive a free car wash coupon. Appointments are encouraged by calling 877-25VITAL (877-258-4825), or by visiting www.vitalant.org and using the code: smmc to sign up.
The 4th annual holiday dinner H-E-B Feast of Sharing is scheduled for Sunday, December 9th, from 11 am to 3 PM at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Sonic Floor. This event welcomes everyone as this is a community event and plans to serve over 5,000 meals. Volunteers are needed to help prepare and serve the free meals. To sign up, call Debra Moreno at the Big Spring H-E-B at 432-816-6018.
