Blood drive, July 26

City of Tehachapi

Wednesday, July 26 will be the date for the next Tehachapi Blood Drive, between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with Houchin Community Blood Bank (HCBB). The blood drive is also seeking donors for platelets and plasma, these types of donations take a little longer and help, burn victims and cancer patients.

HCBB will be joining forces with Tehachapi Vineyard Church, Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District and the City of Tehachapi once again to provide an opportunity to donate blood for our community in Kern County. The drive will be held at Tehachapi Vineyard Church, 502 E. Pinon St.

"We continue to work together to get the word out on blood drives because there is such a need for blood products in Kern County, the donations made at Tehachapi Blood Drives stay in our area," said Key Budge drive coordinator for the City of Tehachapi.

Reserve a time to donate by signing up on the HCBB website at connect.hcbb.com/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/7143.

Houchin Community Blood Bank (HCBB) will be on hand with two buses and extra staff. Tehachapi Vineyard Church will be open so donors can stay cool. Platelet and plasma donations are collected in the comfort of a classroom inside the church.
