FAIRTIME BLOOD DRIVES SAVE LIVES

 

Pomona, CA – Aug. 10, 2012 – The L.A. County Fair and several of its community partners are hosting blood drives to help replenish the local supply. With summer being a normally slow season for donations, and the blood supplies throughout Southern California nearing very low levels, the Fair is encouraging all who can to save a life by donating blood.
