Houska Automotive, a local and family-owned and operated automotive shop in Fort Collins, will host the 14th annual Halloween Blood Drive on Friday, Oct 30, from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Garth Englund Blood Center located at 1025 Pennock Place in Fort Collins near Lemay and Pennock. Thanks to Coopersmith’s Pub and Brewery, for every pint of blood donated, donors will receive a gift card for a free pint of beer or non-alcoholic beverage. To donate, call Houska Automotive at 970-482-0156 to set up a time to give.

“This year’s ‘Saddle Up’ theme encourages people to ‘lasso’ a friend to bring along and donate blood as well,” said Dennis Houska, owner and president of Houska Automotive. “The more people we can get to donate, the more lives can be helped in our community.”

To donate, a person must be at least 18 years old, or 17 with a parent’s permission, and show photo identification. New donors must weigh at least 120 pounds and be in good health. Prior donors must weigh at least 110 pounds. For more information on regulations, please visit The UCHealth website.
