39th Annual 95.5 KLOS Blood Drive Saturday, August 22

Though this summer may feel different than summers past, one thing remains constant: the American Red Cross and 95.5 KLOS are coming together to rock Southern California’s airwaves and 15 blood donation locations with the 39th Annual 95.5 KLOS Blood Drive.

The Red Cross and 95.5 KLOS are urging healthy individuals to give blood to restock the shelves for patients battling disease and facing the unexpected.

Donation appointments can be made by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device and using sponsor code: KLOS. Appointments are required.

All presenting donors will receive a limited-edition, commemorative 2020 95.5 KLOS Blood Drive T-shirt. Also, as a thank-you for helping ensure a stable blood supply, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma, including convalescent plasma, Aug. 1-Sept. 3 will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Amazon.* Plus, come to give by Aug. 31 and automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm, redeemable through the 2021 season!^

Blood donation safety precautions

To protect the health and safety of Red Cross staff and donors, individuals who do not feel well or who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should postpone their donation.

Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.
