On Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the City of Santa Clarita will be partnering with the American Red Cross to provide a community blood drive, and with the City of Hope on a bone marrow donor drive. Residents are encouraged to donate blood or register with the Be The Match Registry® – a bone marrow donor registry, in the Century Room at City Hall, located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard.

Blood donations are an ever-present need and just one donation can help save up to three lives. National statistics from the American Red Cross show that every two seconds someone needs a unit of blood.

Residents interested in signing up to donate blood at the Community Blood Drive can do so at redcrossblood.org, using sponsor code cityofsantaclarita. On donation day, participants can go directly to the Century Room on the first floor for evaluation to ensure they are eligible to donate. Save time on donation day by using RapidPass. RapidPass allows you to start the process before getting to the donation site, saving you approximately 15 minutes. Visit redcrossblood.org/rapidpass for more information. All participants must have a valid ID to donate.

Every three minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. You could be the cure by providing a marrow transplant. Register to be an available donor and add your tissue type to the Be The Match Registry. Eligible donors must be 18 to 44 years old and in good health. The registration process takes less than 10 minutes. No blood work is involved; all that’s needed is a saliva swab from the donor’s mouth.  Register for free in person at the event, or online at: join.bethematch.org/dogood2018.
