SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Boys & Girls Club of South Coast Area will be partnering with Southern California Food Bank on Friday, April 17, to host a blood drive at the Campbell Fieldhouse in San Clemente.
Anyone 17 and older, who weighs at least 114 pounds and is in good health, may be eligible to donate blood, according to the club. All donors must show photo identification.
The club also recommends that participants eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment to donate, but walk-ins are welcome.
The club is asking those looking to donate blood to schedule an appointment at scbloodbank.org or call 1.844.380.5220. More information on the drive can also be found at the website or by calling the number.
