CALIFORNIA - There is a critical shortage of blood, Vitalant said. Local residents will have the opportunity to save lives by donating blood during the Vitalant Winter Classic Blood Drive on Saturday, Jan. 25 in Chico, Redding and Yuba City.

“This is a day when the community comes together to help save lives,” said Joe Ayer, Senior Manager of Recruitment at Vitalant. “Blood on the shelf helps patients every day—for traumas, cancer treatments, and critical transfusions—and enables us to be ready if disaster strikes.”

During the event, donors will receive a Vitalant branded hat, scarf and glove set, as well as hot cocoa and refreshments. Participants can also enter to win a trip to Hawaii, Mexico or Disneyland.

We had beautiful weather around northern California on Friday with sunshine and more warmth. Saturday will also be fantastic, so get out and enjoy it! A welcome change to our very dry weather pattern is coming soon.
