Lassen College Holding Blood Drive November 29th

Right now, Vitalant has less than a needed four-day supply of most blood types and less than a two-day supply of type O blood.

Blood donations are going out to hospitals more quickly than they are coming in, creating a shortfall. About 1,000 additional donations are needed each week to ensure patient care.

According to Vitalant, about one-third of donors haven’t kept their appointments in recent weeks, a high for the year. Scheduling and keeping donation appointments are vital to meeting patient needs.

Lassen College is urging all eligible donors to make an appointment now; they have twenty-five appointments to fill. Walk-ins are welcome too.

Please bring your photo ID with you. You can complete your health screening ahead of time to make the process a little faster at the drive. Click here to complete the screening.

Organizers suggest that you drink plenty of water before your donation.

The blood drive will be held from 10:00a.m. to 2:30p.m. in the cafeteria at the college.
