The Houchin Community Blood Bank is hosting its second annual blood drive this Saturday, April 23, at the Real Life Church parking lot from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The church is located at 23841 Newhall Ranch Road, Valencia.
According to a statement from HCBB, the country is experiencing one of the worst blood shortages in over a decade, making it a crucial time for volunteers to donate.
Those who donate blood will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card and a KitchenAid.
In addition to the blood drive, there will also be food trucks and vendors at the event, including Birrieria El Patron 818 and Happy Ice.
