Red Cross Blood Drive

April 29 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

The La Canada Presbyterian Church will be hosting a Blood Drive in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, April 29, 2021, from 8 am until 2 pm.  The church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd., La Canada, CA 91011.

Every two (2) seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, from accident victims to children battling cancer to mothers giving birth. Healthy volunteer donors are the key to helping save lives. Medical conditions and emergencies don’t stop for a pandemic. The Red Cross has a continual need for blood donations as blood units need to be used within 42 days. 

If you have received a COVID-19 vaccine, you will need to provide the manufacturer name when you come to donate. Upon being vaccinated, you should receive a card or printout indicating what COVID-19 vaccine was received. You are encouraged to bring that card with you the day of your blood donation. In most cases, there is no deferral time for individuals who received a vaccination as long as you are symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation. For further eligibility questions, please call 1 (800) 733-2767. 

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. No walk-ins at this time.
