April 10, 2021
Houchin Community Blood Bank returns to the City of Tehachapi on Thursday, April 29, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The community-wide blood drive will be held at Tehachapi Valley Recreation & Parks District's West Park at 490 W. D Street.
If you would like to reserve a time to donate, please use this link to find a time that works for you: connect.hcbb.com/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/6142 .
To help save even more time, fill out the donor questionnaire on the day of the event (must be day of the donation) at HCBB.com and print it or screenshot the barcode for staff to scan and save a few minutes.
Forty-two people donated during the March 30 event in Tehachapi. Everyone that donated blood at the February event is eligible to donate for April 29.
Information on becoming a blood, platelet and plasma donor can be found on their website, http://www.HCBB.com. Blood donations save lives, people need blood following severe accidents, surgery, cancer and severe anemia. One unit of blood can help save up to three lives.
"We are very happy to help coordinate these blood drives every month in Tehachapi. The fact that each blood donation stays right here in Kern County is a motivator for some," said Key Budge Event Coordinator, City of Tehachapi.
Walk-ins on the day of the event will be welcomed, priority going to those who have a reservation.
