Univision Blood Drive with Vitalant

June 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Univision Blood Drive Friday June 16 Cal Expo Donors receive one admission ticket o the CA State Fair!
Blood donors are needed this summer! Give blood at the 22nd Annual Univision Blood Drive at Cal Expo on Friday, June 16. Know your generous blood donation helps patients and as a special thank you, receive one admission ticket to the California State Fair.

Parking is free for blood donors in Lot D on 1600 Exposition Blvd.

Make your appointment at vitalant.org/univisioncontigo or call 877-258-4825.

Almost everyone can donate blood but only 3% of eligible donors actually donate! Let’s change that!

Vitalant collects several thousand fewer donations during the summer season because those who donate regularly are on vacation and schools take a summer break. But patients continue to need blood for countless reasons including injuries sustained in motor vehicle and recreational accidents, effects of cancer treatments, post-childbirth massive blood loss, blood disorders, burn injuries and more. The need for blood affects everyone because a patient who needs blood can be a child, a teen, a mom or dad, a neighbor or co-worker, a grandparent, or someone who crosses your path every day. Let’s make sure we have the blood needed to support patients through crises that can affect any one of us.

Donate blood! Then let’s go to the CA State Fair & Food Festival and have some fun!
