DONATE BLOOD & HELP SAVE LIVES!
PASADENA, Calif.—The Pasadena Public Health Department is partnering with U.S. Representatives Adam Schiff and Judy Chu along with the American Red Cross, the Muslims for Life Campaign and the City’s Public Works and Police Departments to participate in a nationwide blood drive campaign encouraging the public to donate blood to help save lives.
Currently, there is a national need for donated blood of all types. As of June 2012, blood donations were down by more than 10 percent across the country, with 50,000 fewer pints of blood available than expected. The public’s participation is critical in meeting the need for blood transfusions. In fact, your donation can even save more than one life through just one blood donation!
The public is encouraged to participate in the Blood Drive at the following dates and locations:
- 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 28, Public Works-City Yards, 233 West Mountain Avenue, Second Floor Conference Room
- 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 29, Pasadena Police Department, 207 North Garfield Avenue, Second Floor Assembly Room
- 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Thursday, August 30, Pasadena Public Health Department, 1845 North Fair Oaks Avenue, Second Room 2407
The Pasadena Public Health Department has been serving the public in the greater Pasadena area for more than 120 years. For more information about the City of Pasadena, go online to www.cityofpasadena.net.
