Blood Donation Drive

March 5, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The American Red Cross declared the first ever national blood crisis. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our country is facing a significant decline in blood donations. This substantial reduction leaves medical professionals in the difficult position of having to prioritize patients in need of blood transfusions. Patients whose blood needs are non-life threatening are often being forced to wait.

We need YOUR help! In response to this crisis, the Huntington Beach City Council directed City staff to work with UCI Health to host a blood drive at Huntington Beach City Hall (2000 Main Street) on Saturday, March 5, from 9am to 4pm. Due to COVID-19 protocols, an appointment to donate is required, as walk-ups cannot be accommodated.

The most requested blood type is Type O, but all blood types are needed. Blood and/or platelets cannot be manufactured and are needed every two seconds in the United States. On average, 29,000 units of red blood cells, 5,000 units of platelets, and 6,500 units of plasma are needed every day. For more information on the importance of adequate blood supply and to see if you qualify, click here.

In addition to the blood drive, the Huntington Beach City Council has asked staff to identify and promote additional opportunities for the community to participate in blood drives. We encourage everyone to continue following SurfCityBreak.com for additional blood donation opportunity in Orange County.
