Blood Drive to be held at Walmart

Staff Report

PASO ROBLES – United Blood Services will be continuing their 31st annual Gift of Life Blood Drive on Jan. 2, 3 and 4 from 11 to 4 p.m. at Walmart in Paso Robles. Blood donors will receive a lunch certificate from F.McLintocks Saloon.

The Blood Drive, which began Dec. 26, is being held at two blood bank locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, but North County residents are invited to visit the mobile drive at Walmart: 180 Niblick Rd., Paso Robles.

“Nobody expects to need blood, but it is important to ensure that it is available, especially during the holiday season,” said Mona Kleman, Senior Donor Recruitment Manager.

Appointments for Gift of Life are requested. Donors may book their appointments online at or may call (805) 543-4290, ext. 0. To speed up the process, it is recommended that all blood donors complete the required FastTrack questionnaire before arriving at their scheduled appointment.
