Your Blood Is Desperately Needed!

Former Village Green President Marge Gold and Sotherby’s realtor Josie Tong hold up Red Cross signs to remind residents of the importance of giving blood and donating.

Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. And it could be you or a member of your family. There are two opportunities to give blood in the next few weeks in Pacific Palisades. The requirements to give are easy, be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 16 years old.

SEPTEMBER 19

There will be a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 19, at the Ronald Reagan Post 283 American Legion, 15247 La Cruz Drive. To make an appointment,  click here and enter sponsor cord “Post283.” Before donating, eat a well-balanced meal and don’t forget to bring a photo ID.

When you register and donate in September, you will be given an email coupon for a free haircut from Sport Clips Haircuts. A donor (18 and older) will automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for two and a VIP experienced to the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Races at Darlington Raceway. The trip includes a round-trip airfare for two to South Carolina, up to a three-night hotel stay, entry to the Sport Clips racetrack hospitality tent, plus a $1,000 gift card for expenses.

 

OCTOBER 1

There will be a blood drive at Corpus Christi Catholic Church from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 1. The donations will take place in the gym, 880 Toyopa Drive.

“You’re just our type!” All blood types are needed.

To make an appointment, visit Redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code: CorpusChristi or email Nina.Minton@Redcross.org with questions or call 866-236-3276. Anyone donating between October 1 to 20, will receive a $15 Amazon.com gift card by email.
