A Burger for a Pint

Hey, donate a pint (no, this is not about drinking pints) and you score a delicious Balboa Burger:

is hosting a blood drive to increase blood drive donations and boost critically low blood supplies in the Bay Area. Each summer, blood banks deal with a drastic change in the blood supply around the country, as travel takes people away from school and work, where they often participate in blood drives.

However, this year, blood bank officials are reporting that this is the longest running shortage in 10 years. To increase donations, each person who donates blood aboard Blood Center of the Pacific’s (BCP) bloodmobile parked outside the Balboa Cafe will receive a free ‘Balboa Burger.’

To donate blood, one must be healthy, at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more.

To schedule an appointment time, please contact: Amanda Botelho, a_botelho [at] plumpjack [dot] com or 415-346-5712. Walk-in donors will also be accepted.

Blood Centers of the Pacific is a nonprofit, community-based organization that provides blood and blood components to hospitals, physicians and patients throughout Northern California, including all San Francisco hospitals, and conducts medical research to improve blood safety and patient care. Thousands of lives are sustained, even saved through blood transfusions and research that come from Blood Centers of the Pacific.
