This Wednesday, May 20, the Ducks and Honda Center will partner with UCI Health for a blood drive to be held in the Honda Center parking lot.
Wednesday's event will be by appointment only and potential donors are encouraged to register here. (appointments available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.). The safety of donors and staff will be the utmost priority for UCI Health, the Ducks and Honda Center. Social distancing policies will be in place, with masks mandatory for all donors and staff members.
As the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Orange County, UCI Medical Center requires more than 1,000 units of blood each month - equivalent to the total blood volume of 100 adults. There is no substitute for human blood. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the need is even greater. Additionally, blood donations typically drop during spring and summer, often resulting in shortages of blood. Donations during Wednesday's event will help UCI Health maintain its supply and save lives in Orange County.
