The Heber Teachers' Association and Uniserv of Imperial County are sponsoring a replacement blood drive for one of their own, Jesus Salgado, who recently was diagnosed with cancer.
The drive will be Thursday at the American Legion Hall, 569 Broadway in El Centro. Donations will be accepted from 1 to 5 p.m.
Salgado, a teacher for the Heber School District, is undergoing chemotherapy and stem cell replacement therapy at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. It is likely that, if he hasn't received blood yet, he will in the future.
