Think your local police are heroes? You can be one, too, by rolling up your sleeve for the blood drive hosted by Marysville Police on Monday, Dec. 30, from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Bloodworks NW will have their mobile bus parked outside the Public Safety Building, 1635 Grove St.
Donating blood takes about an hour of your time and one donation can help up to three people. Every two seconds in the United States, someone needs blood. It takes 800 donors a day to sustain a blood supply for patients in the Puget Sound community.
