The American Red Cross has a critical need for blood donations, and the City of Santa Clarita is urging residents to make a life-saving appointment. An upcoming City blood drive is scheduled today from 10:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. at The Old Town Newhall Library Branch in Meeting Room 100, 24500 Main St.

Residents may schedule an appointment and view other blood drives near them by visiting RedCrossBlood.org and entering sponsor code “NewhallLibrary” or by calling (800) Red Cross.

Interested blood donors must be at least 16-years-of-age and should be in good health. Upon signing in for your blood donation appointment, you will review all basic eligibility requirements and answer questions regarding your health history. The blood donation process from the time you arrive until the time you leave takes approximately one hour.
