10th Annual Debbie Parreira Memorial Blood Drive


Please join me on Saturday May 22nd, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, for the 10th Annual Debbie Parreira Blood Drive.  Debbie was a long-time, area resident and through life-saving blood donations, was able to extend her breast cancer fight.  Debbie lost her battle, however, the blood donations her family, friends, neighbors, and community provided allowed her more time, more hugs and more memories. Together, we can do that for others.

This year’s blood drive will be held at Espana’s Southwest Bar & Grill, 1460 E Pacheco Blvd, Los Banos, CA 93635-4901.

Special thanks to the Del Bosque Fruit Stand for their generous donations, España’s for hosting and many other District 5 supporters.

Appointments are NOT required, and all blood types are welcome.  This year has been an extraordinarily difficult year for blood donations, and every drop counts. For more information, please contact Debbie’s daughter, Melissa Goodman at (209) 752-4163 or Emmanuel Ochoa at (559) 259-3852.  I hope to see you there.
