“This year, we’re calling our blood drive the “Vein Drain” and encourage everyone to dress in their best Halloween attire!” said Dennis Houska, owner and president of Houska Automotive. “We are so grateful for the continued participation from our community and can’t wait to see how many donors we get this year.”

Not only will blood donors benefit local patients in the community, but they will also receive a Coopersmith’s Pub & Brewing gift card good for a free pint of beer or non-alcoholic beverage when donating a pint of blood. To donate, call Houska Automotive at 970-482-0156 to set up a time to give.
