Are you type A, B or O?

Whatever BLOOD type you are (did you think we were talking about your personality?) we want your blood!  The Blood Centers of the Pacific is holding a blood drive in honor of Gary Shipston, a Girl Scout father who will be undergoing a bone marrow transplant next month.  While we are not donating blood specifically for Gary, we are showing our support for him and others that are in need of life-saving blood during treatment.

Their mobile coach will be in the parking lot of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church (16290 Arnold Drive, Sonoma, CA) on Sunday, April 1, from 8:30am – 12:30pm.  Sign-up on-line at and click on “Donate Blood” and enter sponsor code: standrew.  Donors must be at least 18 years of age.  Bring photo ID.  Walk-ins always welcome.

Girl Scouts will be there with just the right cookie flavor to give you a boost of energy after you donate.  Please pass the word and feel free to share this flyer with friends and family.   See you on April 1st!
