Help IRWD Save Lives at Spring 2015 Blood Drive

“Would you like a T-shirt, or a pint of Baskin Robbins Ice Cream?” will be the decision posed before those who participate in Irvine Ranch Water District’s annual spring blood drive on Wednesday, March 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

IRWD is partnering with the UC Irvine bloodmobile, which will be located in the parking lot adjacent to IRWD headquarters at 15600 Sand Canyon Avenue, Irvine. The public is invited to participate.

IRWD has held blood drives for more than 20 years. This drive will benefit Orange County’s only Level I Trauma Center.
