"Pie for a Pint" Blood Drive Nov. 22

Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital invites the community to give the gift of life by donating blood during its winter blood drive on Wednesday, November 22, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Henry Mayo Center Education Center, Rooms 5 and 6 on the hospital’s campus at 23803 McBean Parkway, Valencia.

 

Every day, thousands of people rely on blood donors to help them maintain optimum health. Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital partners with the American Red Cross to host six blood drives each year on the hospital campus. Blood collected at Henry Mayo is processed by the American Red Cross and dedicated to the hospital. That means that the blood is returned to the hospital for patient use.

 

As a special thank you, all donors will receive a free 9-inch Thanksgiving pie. A photo ID is required.

 

In addition to on-campus blood drives, the American Red Cross hosts drives throughout the community with dozens of businesses, schools, and community organizations. The blood collected at these Hospital affiliate drives is also dedicated to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. For each unit of blood collected at these drives, the hospital receives a credit towards its blood purchases
