Give the Gift of Life, Donate Blood on Thursday

A Community Blood Drive will be held at the Sierra Madre Community Recreation Center on Dec. 20.

The community is invited to participate in a blood drive on Thursday at the Sierra Madre Community Recreation Center.

The event, which is co-hosted by the Sierra Madre Community Services Department and American Red Cross, will be held from noon to 6 p.m. on Dec. 20, 2012 at 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.

It is open to the public and participants must be:

  • 17 years of age or older
  • weigh at least 110 pounds
  • in general good health 

Donors will receive Subway sandwiches plus a coupon from Cold Stone Creamery as a show of thanks from the American Red Cross.

"With the recent Tropical Storm Sandy blood donations are needed more than ever and what better time than the holidays to donate," a city-issued statement read.

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.
