Although the local Red Cross will be providing all the materials , we will also need to provide bottled water , orange juice and snacks for the donors while the Pechanga Food Services can successfully handle the promotion and the blood donation drive . I have attached a detailed report of the costs involved for the Blood Donation Drive . Please...
