Make an appointment to donate blood on Dec. 15

Did you know?

  • Every two seconds someone in America needs blood.
  • Nearly 5 million people receive blood transfusions every year.
  • There’s always a high demand for blood donors, especially in Northern California.

Our local blood banks often have to bring blood in from across the country because they don’t get enough blood donations to meet our area’s needs.

Please help those in medical need by scheduling an appointment to donate blood Wednesday, Dec. 15, from 8:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

  • Contact – Jan Kehoe, (510) 987-9692 or
  • Where – American Red Cross Bloodmobile at 11th Street, between Franklin and Webster Streets – in front of the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) building – just a half-block away from the Franklin building

The Office of the President has a strong tradition of helping the American Red Cross; this is the 51st blood drive coordinated by OP. The first blood drive was held in November 2000.

To schedule your appointment to donate and get more information, please contact Jan Kehoe at (510) 987-9692 or Read about the donation process in a past issue of Link.
