Family Fun Day and Bloodmobiles

mbselfMission Bay Self Storage will host a bloodmobile tomorrow (Sunday) from 7:30 am to noon. They are also be hosting a yard sale event and “family fun day” from 8 am to 2 pm, to benefit the Palm Beach Museum of Natural History.
The Bloodmobile will be in Mission Bay Plaza on Monday the 17th from noon until 10 pm, sponsored by Office Max and LA Fitness.
Wednesday the 19th it will be at Weinbaum Yeshiva High School from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
Boca Greens Plaza hosts a blood drive on Friday the 21st from 3pm to 8pm, and there will be another bloodmobile at the Chili’s on St. Andrews Blvd from 4:30 to 9:30 pm the same day.
Hammock Pointe Elementary will be the site of a blood drive on Saturday the 22nd from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Sunday the 23rd is a little confusing. OneBlood lists a drive at 21121 Oriole Country Road, in zip code 33434. The sponsor is Glades Presbyterian Church, which is at the intersection of Judge Winikoff and Ponderosa. Since we’ve only been here less than three years, we didn’t know that the road was renamed to Judge Winikoff in 2009. The bloodmobile will be there from 10 am to 1:30 pm.
There are two other locations that Sunday: From 2-4 pm there will be a bloodmobile in front of Regal Shadowood (probably with free movie tickets), and from 3-8 pm they’ll be at the Publix at 441 and Sandalfoot.
