VALENCIA, CA (March 23, 2020) — On Wednesday, April 1, from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital will partner with the American Red Cross and host a blood drive at the Henry Mayo Education Center, located on the hospital campus at 23803 McBean Pkwy, Valencia, CA 91355. Later that week, an additional blood drive will take place on Friday, April 3, from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., also at the Henry Mayo Education Center.
Last week, the American Red Cross posted the following message via social media, “We urge healthy, eligible individuals to schedule a blood or platelet donation appointment to help maintain a sufficient blood supply and avoid potential shortages during this coronavirus outbreak. Donating blood is a safe process and people should not hesitate to give or receive blood.”
Due to a tremendous response from our community, the blood drives scheduled for April 1 and April 3 are both full. While walk-ups are not currently being accepted, we would like to encourage you to continue to check www.redcrossblood.org for future donation opportunities.
