Randall Opperman III, the son and grandson of active duty Los Angeles Firefighters, is in a brave fight for his life at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and needs your blood and platelets.
A blood drive to support young Randy and other children in medical need will be held:
Tuesday, July 20, 2010
7:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Fire Station 87
10124 Balboa Boulevard
Granada Hills, CA 91344
Donors will be treated by firefighters to a pancake breakfast in the morning and lunch of Tri Tip sandwiches in the afternoon.
All blood types are needed. Those with medical questions - or who are interested in donating platelets, are encouraged to contact Childrens Hospital Blood Services directly at (323) 361-2441.
Our sincere thanks to the many who made this special blood drive a success. Though young Randy has been helped through your stunning generosity, other children remain in need. If you live near Los Angeles, you can save the life of a "future firefighter" by visiting: chla.org/donateblood
