As severe blood shortages continue due to an unprecedented number of blood-drive cancellations during the coronavirus outbreak, the University of California, Los Angeles, is hosting another blood drive in Valencia.
Right now, there’s a critical need for blood and platelets, so eligible and healthy donors are strongly urged to make an appointment to provide life-saving blood products to patients.
The blood drive is scheduled 1-6 p.m. on Tuesday at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s Spurling Hall, located at 24901 Orchard Village Road in Valencia.
Appointments are highly encouraged, and to book one, visit uclahealth.org/gotblood or call 310-825-0888, ext. 2. Use code “SSECH” when searching for drive.
