North Coast donors can give blood locally from 1 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, at the Cambria Veterans Memorial Building, 1000 Main St. Donors go to the “bloodmobile” van, which will be in the parking lot.
That’s a different day of the week; the bloodmobile is usually here on selected Thursdays.
UBS staffers say that all blood types are needed, especially Type O, and that April donors can double the impact of their donation. How? People who give blood in April can allocate their “Hero Rewards Points” to Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties. The donated points will benefit local children, so the gifts of blood can help save lives and help make ill children’s wishes come true.

The blood-donation drive is one of several held each year in Cambria in honor of the late Dave Melendy, who was an administrator of the Cambria Community Healthcare District, the 12th paramedic licensed in SLO county and a Coast Union High School grad.
