There is a blood drive through 7 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) with the American Red Cross at 7675 Mesa College Drive. Eat and drink before you go.

I've been debating for days whether to continued my planned vacation next Monday to SD or cancel. I've decided to go as planned but revise it into a volunteer mission.

Please someone direct me where I can be of the most service. I will be in SD for a week. Thanks

my name is jeff martinez. i live in ogden, utah but most of my family lives in san diego. i work for kimberly-clark. i am going to ask the corporation to donate products such as diapers and toilet paper if these products are needed. if my company says that they will donate these goods, who is it that KC is supposed to give the donations to? also if my work wont help, i would like to help in any way i can. my email is eljefe13@comcast.net so let me know about either situation.

thanks,
