Valentine's Day is next Wednesday, February 14th and you're looking to give a meaningful gift this year. A gift that can last a lifetime and maybe even save a life. When we think about Valentine's Day, sometimes we think about the heart and this gift is from the heart for the heart....and the rest of the body.

I'm talking about giving blood, you could make this an early Valentine's Day present with the one you love and enjoying pancakes too.

Bridgewater Church on 1017 Conklin Road in Conklin is having a Community Blood drive this Saturday, February 10th from 8am to 1pm. Give blood and then enjoy pancakes when you're done, it's a "pancakes and pints" breakfast date.

Go here to sign up now or call 1-800-RED CROSS. If you're going alone or looking for a familiar face, I'll be donating blood at 9 am and sticking around for some flapjacks afterwards. If you can't make it on Saturday but would like to give the gift of life this Valentine's season, go here to see other places in our area to give blood.

I hope to see you Saturday morning and let's give something that means something this holiday season.
