Imperial Beach Neighborhood Center, 455 Palm Avenue, will hold its fourth “by appointment only” blood drive on June 10 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. To make an appointment, go to www.RedCrossBlood.org. Make your reservation now as space is limited.
The Imperial Beach community, through the IB Neighborhood Center, has brought out 79 donors through three previous blood efforts since April. Of those donating, 73% were making their first blood donation. The American Red Cross indicates there is a national blood shortage due to closure of facilities impacted by COVID-19 where blood drives were planned to take place. The Red Cross is grateful for the high turn out of Imperial Beach residents. They emphasize that lives are saved with each donation.
With that in mind, make your appointment now.
