St. Margaret Parish to Host Mobile Drive – July 29

Oceanside CA— St. Margaret Parish in partnership with San Diego Blood Bank will host a Mobile Blood Drive on Sunday, July 29, 2018 8:00 am ‑ 1:00 pm, 4300 Oceanside Blvd in the parking lot.

About 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood. One pint of blood, which is the amount volunteers give when they donate blood, can save up to three lives. Since blood is always needed, volunteers are asked to give blood for patients, such as those going through cancer or trauma.

Donors must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • 17 and older (Age 16 requires a parental consent)
  • 114 pounds and in good health

It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids prior to giving. A photo identification must be presented upon signing up to donate.

Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment for their convenience but walk-ins are also welcome. To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800-4MY-SDBB (1-800-469-7322) or visit www.SanDiegoBloodBank.org.
