KSBY is partnering with Vitalant to host the annual Be a Hero Blood Drive this Wednesday, Aug. 30.

The blood drive will take place from 1-7 p.m. at two locations — the KSBY studios in San Luis Obispo and the Vitalant Donation Center in Santa Maria.

All donors will receive a blood donor T-shirt and tacos, chips and salsa from Taqueria 805, which will be on-site at both locations.

Donors who are signed up for Vitalant's donor recognition program will also receive bonus points for a $10 gift card.

According to Vitalant, blood donated now will help ensure there is blood available for patients through the Labor Day holiday weekend when donations tend to drop.
