The Independence Day holiday weekend is the lowest time of the summer for blood donations. Please donate at Vitalant’s Saving Arizona Blood Drive Saturday, July 2, 8am – 1pm at Gila River Arena, or Sunday, July 3, 7am – 1pm at the Tempe Center for the Arts. A lucky donor will be drawn as one of the 10 finalists for a 2022 Volkswagen Taos. You will also be thanked with a Vitalant summer grilling apron, as well as a voucher for a free Whataburger. All blood types are needed, especially Type-O, the universal donor.
