We have our first project of 2024 and we are asking you to roll up your sleeve and help us help others. We have scheduled a blood drive on Jan. 18 and this is extra special to us because we can help our immediate past district governor Chuck Pretto. Chuck is battling cancer and is using platelets of which there is a shortage.  
Interested platelet donors should contact the sandiegobloodbank.org/donate, go to sponsor name search, to schedule a donation. And if you want to give blood, just come to the blood drive on Jan. 18. Giving blood is a quick procedure, donating platelets is more time consuming which is why you'll want to schedule directly with San Diego Blood Bank.
