Dutch Valley Restaurant to be site of blood drive

Suncoast Communities Blood Bank will host a blood drive at Dutch Valley Restaurant in Sarasota on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Anyone who donates blood during that time will enjoy a free breakfast.

Dutch Valley is located at 6721 S. Tamiami Trail.

The blood bank typically logs fewer donations during the summertime, statistics have shown, because fewer people are in the community. Nonetheless, the demand for blood remains strong at area hospitals.

For more information or to sign up for the blood drive, contact Renee Piney at 941-924-1770.
