MALIBU—The city of Malibu will host its annual Blood Drive in partnership with the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region on Thursday, June 7. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
According to the city of Malibu website, the American Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Blood is vital for people of all ages and backgrounds and for various reasons including trauma victims, blood transfusions and chronic disease patients.
Every two seconds, an individual in the United States is in need of blood. Donating one pint of blood can save up to three lives.
