East County News Service

January 15, 2019 (San Diego) – The American Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donors across San Diego County.  Blood and platelet donations dropped by 27,000 over the holiday/flu season. These are perishable supplies that must be replaced to meet the needs of patients in need of life-saving medical treatment.

Blood drives are being held in many locations coming up countywide. (See full list below.) In East County, there will be a blood drive on February 4th from 1-7 p.m. at the Santee United Methodist Church, 8964 Magnolia Avenue in Santee. You can also schedule an appointment by calling 1-800-733-2767 or by using the Blood Donor App or visiting redcrossblood.org.

Donation appointments and completion of a RapidPass online health history questionnaire are encouraged to help reduce the time it takes to donate.
