Do you really want to take the time out of your busy weekend to make dinner? Since you'll probably be out and about tomorrow anyway, why not let somebody else do the cooking for you? And here's the best part--you can support the American Red Cross by doing nothing more than enjoying a delicious meal that you didn't have to cook!!
The American Red Cross, Serving Erie & Niagara Counties is teaming up with the Bob Evans Restaurant at 6543 Niagara Falls Boulevard this Saturday for a delicious opportunity. Between 11am-4pm on Saturday, October 15th, the Red Cross Bloodmobile will be in the parking lot. So on your way into the restaurant, stop in and roll up your sleeves! Walk-in appointments are always welcome, and the need for blood is constant.

If you were living in Western New York at the time, you likely have vivid memories of October 12th, 2006. At the time, I was not yet fortunate enough to be a member of the Red Cross family. I left for my job at a local tv station that afternoon, thinking it was a little chilly and cursing those pesky white flakes for falling so early in the year. As the evening wore on my wife called, very concerned. She was hearing a constant cracking noise and was afraid a tree was going to fall into our house. Later, she said we had lost power, branches were coming down everywhere, and she was going to a friends house. That tree eventually did fall into our house, but instead of crashing through it just leaned against the structure. Others weren't so lucky.
