Vampire Bites – musings & news

Vampires love blood drives. It’s the best place to find healthy humans, generously willing to give to those in need in their community.

Today, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP) kicks off its “pint-for-a-pint” blood drive. From now thru March 15th, everyone who donates blood receives a coupon for a free pint of Baskin-Robbins ice cream, while coupons last. And, all blood collected by CHOMP is used locally.

For convenience, appointments are offered at Community Hospital’s Blood Center by calling 831-625-4814 or e-mailing (The center will be closed March 6 and 13 for off-site drives.)
