Eagle County community blood drive set for Saturday

Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado

Kick off the New Year and share the warmth this winter by delighting someone in need with the gift of life. The Eagle County Community Blood Drive will be held in Edwards Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. As a thank you for your donation, all donors who give blood Saturday through Jan. 19, 2013 will receive a Bonfils messenger bag, while supplies last.

The winter months are often the most difficult to maintain Colorado’s blood supply due to holiday activities, poor weather and road conditions and cold and flu season.

Bonfils Blood Center provides blood and blood products to nearly 200 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the Colorado and beyond. Bonfils needs nearly 3,000 people to donate blood every week to meet the needs of the community and be prepared for any unforeseen events.

For more information about Bonfils Blood Center, visit http://www.bonfils.org or call 303-363-2300 or 800-365-0006.
