Walnut Famil Festival holds blood drive

Beside the usual fun and games, this year’s Family Festival in Suzanne Park will give Walnut residents have a chance to save lives. The American Red Cross Blood Mobile will be on hand on Saturday to take donations to help those in need.

“We hope we can get at least 42 donors to donate a pint of blood,” said Walnut Recreation Director Gabriela Encinas. “If we collect 42 pints of blood, we can save up to 126 lives because they figure each pint can save three lives.”
