Barons Market to host blood drive in Murrieta

 

Last updated 12/21/2018 at 12:07am



MURRIETA – Barons Market will host a mobile blood drive in partnership with San Diego Blood Bank from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27, in their parking lot at 40545 California Oaks Road, in Murrieta. Donors will receive a limited edition holiday T-shirt, while supplies last.

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, be at least 17 years old, 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. 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, call (800) 469-7322 or visit http://www.SanDiegoBloodBank.org.
