St. James Catholic Church will host a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, July 8, in the church’s memorial center, 1275 B St.
Donors can earn reward points that can be redeemed for Baskin-Robbins ice cream or other treats. Donors also may be entered into a drawing for a chance to win four tickets to a Sacramento River Cats game.

Donors must bring a photo ID and should drink plenty of fluids before donating.
