The City of Chino Hills continues to host weekly blood drives every Tuesday through the end of September from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Government Center parking lot located at 14077 Peyton Drive. There is a critical need for blood donations throughout Southern California and LifeStream is accepting donations of all types, especially those in the type O group, a universal donor.
Blood donors must be in good health, at least 15-years-old, and must show valid photo identification. Minors must provide a completed parental consent form available online at www.lstream.org. If you have been vaccinated for COVID-19, you are still able to donate blood after being vaccinated or even on the same day of being vaccinated.
Appointments are recommended and can be made online. Visit www.chinohills.org/BloodDrives or call (800) 879-4484 for more information or to make an appointment to donate. Walk-ins are welcome. LifeStream continues to require all donors to wear face coverings at blood drives and donation centers.
LifeStream is testing all successful (complete) blood donations for antibodies to SARS-CoV2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. This testing is provided free of charge as an additional benefit to donors. This test shows whether you have been exposed to the virus in the past, not if you are currently infected.
