Raider Nation Blood Drive
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Members of the Raider Nation used the team's bye week to give back to the central valley. Fans turned the parking lot of the Central California Blood Center into a tailgate -- during the 6th Annual Raider Nation Blood Drive.
Inside, fans wore the team's colors as they waited to donate blood and then watched football as they gave the gift of life.
More than 600 people donated Saturday surpassing last year's record.
Now, members of the Raider Nation are hoping to inspire other fans to donate as well.
"I challenge all the Raider Haters out there to come out and give blood next week and double what the raider nation did today," Jessica Tablett said.
The Annual Raider Nation Blood Drive is organized by the team's valley booster clubs and the Tom Flores Youth Foundation.
Flores is a Sanger native who coached the team during two super bowl championships.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
