Save the date! Friday, November 8th the Sierra Madre Community Services Department and American Red Cross are hosting a Community Blood Drive from 10:00am to 4:00 pm. This life saving event takes place at the Sierra Madre Community Recreation Center, 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd., and is open to the public. Individuals who are 17 years of age or older, 110 pounds or more and are in generally good health are eligible to donate blood. If you have recently donated blood, you must wait 56 days before your next donation.
Donating blood is a simple and short process. Blood donation is a four step process: registration, medical history and mini‐physical, donation and refreshments. The actual blood donation only takes 10‐12 minutes of your time! One donation can help save the lives of up to three people! This is a great way to help others and contribute to the American Red Cross. To schedule an appointment, please visit www.redcrossblood.org or contact the Community Services Department at (626) 355‐7394. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are encouraged.
