While we suffer through one of the windiest summers I can remember, it's important to note the urgent deficiency of our region's blood supply. I'm looking for opportunities to give blood in Hood River and not finding many. Any other pointers besides this one?

Hey just an update on this, there are some upcoming blood drives at the Hood River Valley Adult Center in the heights and Waucoma Building (where you can walk over and replenish yourself at Crush afterward). I managed to squeeze into one of only a few open slots at the Adult Center a few weeks ago, and tried my first "Power Red" donation since my blood type is O+.

Personal tips: hydrate a bunch beforehand, and don't give them your phone number unless you're prepared to hear them ask for your help a lot.
