Home Builders Association Hosts 3-Day Blood Drive

Donors can contribute to the cause Tuesday through Thursday next week

The Home Builders Association of the Central Coast is hosting a three-day blood drive next week in honor of family and friends diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma.

“Nearly 5 million Americans need blood transfusions annually,” said Liz Moody, chairwoman of the association’s public affairs committee. “Someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds. And a single pint of donated blood can save three lives, but only 10 percent of eligible donors actually give blood.”

To help make it easier to give, the association and United Blood Services will welcome potential donors from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the following days and locations:

» Tuesday at Cannon in San Luis Obispo, 1050 Southwood Drive

» Wednesday at Celebration in Santa Maria, Miller Street and Inger Drive (southwest corner)

» Thursday at River Oaks in Paso Robles, 2727 Buena Vista Drive, Paso Robles (off Highway 46 East)

To schedule an appointment or for more information, call Moody at 805.704.7912.

— Jerry Bunin is the government affairs director for the Home Builders Association of the Central Coast.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
