The City of Tehachapi will be joining forces with Houchin Community Blood Bank (HCBB) and the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks Department (TVRPD) for two community-wide blood drives in October.

Both drives will be held at TVRPD West Park at 490 West D Street in Tehachapi. HCBB buses will be parked in the parking lot on Tuesday October 13 and 27 between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Blood donations save lives. People need blood following severe accidents, surgery, cancer and severe anemia.

Donors can also receive free COVID-19 antibody testing from their blood donation.

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.

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

Reserve a time for the October 13 drive can be made at connect.hcbb.com/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5023.

Reservations for October 27 drive can be made at connect.hcbb.com/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5934.
