American Red Cross Blood Drive
American Red Cross is calling on all eligible Diamond Bar residents to roll up their sleeves and help replenish local blood supplies by participating in a blood drive being held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, August 21, 2023 at Heritage Park.
According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood which means blood supplies must constantly be replenished. Blood donations are used for accident victims, as well as for individuals receiving cancer or chronic illness treatment, or undergoing an organ transplant or other surgical procedure.
To be eligible to donate blood, individuals must be at least 18 years old (16- and 17-year-olds must have written parental consent), weigh at least 110 lbs. and be in good health. Blood donations can be made as often as every 56 days, up to six times a year.
Heritage Park is located at 2900 S. Brea Canyon Road. For more information, contact the City’s Parks and Recreation Department at (909) 839-7070.
