Summertime is code for long sunny days, vacations and school brakes, but for us is much more than that. Historically, during summer we see a decrease in blood donations because it is usually not something donors include in their summer plans, which we understand. However, the need for donations does not decrease and it is up to us and the community to maintain a steady blood supply throughout, which is why the Community Wide Blood Drive was created 13 years ago!
We invite the whole community to roll up a sleeve and donate blood to meet the needs of hospitals in Kern County. We get together to kick-off this month-long blood drive on June 4th right outside the KGET Channel 17 Studios from 5 am to 6 pm where you can be one of the first donors to enter to win a Disney Family Vacation! Join the party and celebrate life with us in June! You will have all month to donate and enter: either at the Donor Centers or at one of the blood drives listed below. We will also be giving away random $100 Cash Giveaways to donors!
