Mash Bash Blood Drive Needs Your Help — Today
Every summer LifeShare Blood Centers conduct the Mash Bash blood drive. It is a two-day event that wraps up today, Thursday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. All donors will get a Mash Bash T-shirt and lunch or dinner. The center only had 110 units donated yesterday. Their goal was 150 units. So today they need some serious help to make up for yesterday and hit their goal of 190 units.
