VitalantMay is a month of showing appreciation for the mothers who gave births, as well as veterans whom have given their lives. Become a life-giver by donating blood in May. To show appreciating, Doc Burnsteins will be giving a pint of ice cream for a pint of blood donated as a thank you! Vitalant joins Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream Lab in Santa Maria to make saving lives sweet. The May blood drive will be held on Monday, May 20 from 1 – 6 p.m. at Parking Lot @ Enos Ranch Shopping Center (725 E. Betteravia Road) in Santa Maria.

Launched in 2003, Doc Burnstein’s monthly Blood Drives attract hundreds of donors each year. Doc’s Founder, Greg Steinberger says, “When you consider that each donation can save three lives, the 10,000 donations at Doc Burnstein’s drives makes for a staggering impact.”

Be a part of this monumental event! No appointment needed, but recommended. Pre- registration is available online at or call for an appointment @ (805) 543-4920.
