Red Cross Blood Drive

June 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Give the Gift of Life!

La Canada Presbyterian Church Hosting Blood Drive

The La Canada Presbyterian Church will be hosting a Blood Drive in the Fellowship Hall on June 22, 2020, from 8 am until 2 pm.  The church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd., La Canada, CA 91011.

Red Cross currently has an urgent need for blood donations to prevent another blood supply shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments temporarily paused due to COVID-19. The hospital demand for blood products has grown by 30% in the last few weeks. Blood units need to be used within 42 days, so they must be constantly replenished. The need for blood is constant.

In addition, the Red Cross will be doing COVID antibody testing free of charge for all donors who complete a blood donation process. Donors will receive the results within 7 to 10 days after donating.

Come to LCPC 15 minutes prior to your scheduled donation time to line up.

Social distancing protocol will be followed and temperatures will be taken. You must wear a mask and have photo ID with you on the day of the event in order to give blood. To expedite your blood donation process, please fill out RapidPass® the day of the blood drive prior to your appointment by going online to redcrossblood.org/rapidpass.

Appointments may be made by visiting redcrossblood.org and using sponsor code lacanadapreschurch or by using the Red Cross mobile donor app.

For questions about this event, please contact Rachel Paul at Rachel.paul@redcross.org or call LCPC Blood Drive volunteer, Sheri Morton at (818) 790-7612.
