Friday, Nov. 15, noon to 6 p.m., at Asbury United Methodist Church, 4743 East Ave. The Red Cross critically needs donors of all blood types to give now to keep the blood supply stable during the holidays. Blood donations traditionally decline from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.

Register at and use ASBURY925 as the Sponsor Code, or call Tony Gnecco at 925-895-7794 for more information.

Please donate blood and be the lifeline patients need. Your donation can give a patient in need something to be extra thankful for this year.
