What started out as a conver-sation among friends, after a Tulare City Council Meeting,
has turned into an Award Winning event that unites the small town of Tulare, California
and her surrounding communities.
Since 2007, local organizations and businesses have come together to host the
Tulare 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive. The drive gives local people a chance to honor
victims of the September 11th attacks, by giving life for lives that were lost.
In the last six years, the Tulare 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive has seen more than 6000 pints donated to the Central California Blood Center. The event has also inspired more than 1000 people to donate blood for the first time.
