Tehachapi-wide Blood Drive

City of Tehachapi

On Thursday, July 23, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Houchin Community Blood Bank (HCBB) will be joining forces again with the City of Tehachapi and the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District (TVRPD) on a community-wide blood drive.

Since the COVID-19 crisis began these three organizations have worked together on two community-wide blood drives each month beginning in March. Tehachapi residents have been donating blood consistently helping local hospitals meet the need for blood.

Donors can also receive free COVID-19 antibody test from their blood donation. HCBB will bring multiple buses to ensure social distancing to the TVRPD West Park parking lot located at 490 W. D St., Tehachapi.

Anyone wishing to donate blood are encouraged to sign up ahead of time at connect.hcbb.com/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5589.

You can also fill out the donor questionnaire online the day of the blood drive to save time.
