Give the Gift of Life, Donate Blood at Malibu City Hall on June 8
Community members are invited to give the gift of life by donating blood at the City of Malibu and American Red Cross Community Blood Drive Thursday, June 8, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at City Hall (23825 Stuart Ranch Road).
“Giving blood saves lives, and the Red Cross reminds us that donated blood is always needed nationwide and here in our own community,” said Mayor Bruce Silverstein. “I encourage everyone in Malibu to join this important effort.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, blood donations and blood supplies had fallen due to facility closures, stay-at-home orders and other impacts. Donated blood is still badly needed every day for surgeries, emergencies and regular medical procedures. Blood supplies are also used during major emergencies such as earthquakes, hurricanes, shootings or terrorist attacks.
With COVID-19 rates continuing to improve, the City is proud to once again host this life-saving activity at City Hall. Facemasks are now “individual preference” in line with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines. See the guidelines.
Please register in advance at www.RedCrossBlood.org and enter “CityofMalibu.” For more information, call 818-200-3445. Bring a photo ID, and drink plenty of water and eat well before and after giving blood.
