Elk Grove fire station to host blood drive

From Sandy Louey:

The Cosumnes Community Services District Fire Department and the Murphy 400 Fund will host a community blood drive from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

The drive is at Fire Station 71, 8760 Elk Grove Blvd. No appointment is necessary and donors will receive a BloodSource T-shirt.

The Murphy 400 Fund is a BloodSource donor club started by Tim Murphy of Elk Grove, who set out to collect 400 pints of blood before his 40th birthday last May. By his 40th birthday, 619 pints were donated to the fund.

Prospective donors must be in generally good health, free from cold symptoms for at least 48 hours, be at least 17 years old (16 years old with parental consent); and weigh at least 110 pounds.

Donors also must bring a photo ID.
