The City of Santa Clarita and the American Red Cross are teaming up to host a Community Blood Drive on Thursday, August 11, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Century Room at City Hall, located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard.
According to the American Red Cross, one blood donation can help save up to three lives. There is always a need for blood in the community and nationwide. National statistics from the American Red Cross show someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds.
Residents interested in signing up to donate blood at the Community Blood Drive should visit redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code cityofsantaclarita when signing up. On donation day, participants should go directly to the Century Room on the first floor to be evaluated to ensure they are eligible to donate. Save up to 15 minutes at the blood drive using RapidPass! RapidPass allows you to start the donation process before getting to the donation site.
