Citizens urged to give blood 6/3 at City Hall drive

Post Date:05/19/2020 9:49 AM

COV Blood Drive logoOneBlood will hold a blood drive Wednesday, June 3 outside Venice City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

OneBlood officials have seen a significant drop in blood donations due to concerns over coronavirus, and encourage all those who feel well to come out and donate the “gift of life” aboard the Big Red Bus to ensure that blood is available for those patients who need it.

Donating blood is safe. COVID-19 does not pose any known risk to blood donors during the donation process or from attending blood drives. Donors will be socially distanced aboard the bus.

Each donor will receive a free OneBlood T-shirt, a coupon for a pint of Culver’s custard, a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening, and a snack.

ID required please.

For more information, or to make an appointment online, please visit www.oneblood.org/donate-now/ and use sponsor code #9354. Walk-ins are welcome.
