Blood Drive

October 11, 2017

BloodSource will be holding a community blood drive on Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 10:00am-3:00pm at Folsom Lake College's El Dorado Center (6699 Campus Dr., off Green Valley Rd./Missouri Flat Rd., in Placerville - click here for map).

Following the tragedy in Las Vegas on October 1, community members quickly rallied to help those affected, including the family of Cameron Park's Kurt Von Tillow who was killed in the attack, by donating money, giving blood, and sharing messages of hope and support. The college's first blood drive effort at the Main Folsom campus October 4-5 yielded 209 pints of lifesaving blood donated by 280 people (152 of whom were first timers). Since blood collected only lasts 42 days, efforts are needed to replenish blood banks into the month of November, which is traditionally a very challenging time for blood collection.

To donate, please bring a photo ID, have a good breakfast and/or lunch, and come well-hydrated. Please allow approximately 2 hours for the donation process. For more information, contact Felicia LaMothe with BloodSource at (916) 453-3058 or felicia.lamothe@bloodsource.org.

Please Note: There will be one additional Folsom Lake College fall blood drive stop at the Rancho Cordova Center campus (10259 Folsom Blvd., off Paseo Dr./Mather Field Rd.) on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 from 10:00am-2:00pm.
