Blood Drive to be held at Des Moines Farmers Market on Saturday, Aug. 16


The Des Moines Farmers Market will be hosting a summer blood drive on Saturday, Aug. 16, and the Puget Sound Blood Center needs help!

With summer, come vacations.

Vacations mean fewer blood donors.

Summer does not mean less need for blood. As a matter of fact, with people being more active, demand for blood goes up in the summer. This means there are fewer donors available at a time of the year when the need increases.

“Can we count on you to give?”

Here are the details:

WHAT: Summer Blood Drive at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market (look for the bus parked near Yacht Club)

WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 16, 9:00am – 3:00 pm (closed 11:00–12:00 pm)

WHERE: Des Moines Farmers Market – look for a bus parked near the Yacht Club
