TEMECULA – The San Diego Blood Bank is hosting two mobile blood drives in the last week of March.

Jojoba Hills RV Resort will host a mobile blood drive, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, March 29, in the friendship hall at 45120 State Route 79 South in Aguanga.

Pat &Oscar’s at 29375 Rancho California Road in Temecula will host a mobile blood drive in their parking lot, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 31.

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. Approximately, 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood but less than 10 percent do annually. 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 eligibility requirements, be at least 17 years old or age 16 with required parental consent, weigh at least 114 pounds and be in good health.

It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids before giving blood. 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, call (619) 469-7322 or visit www.SanDiegoBloodBank.org.
