Blood Drive at The Park - June 11, 2018

The City of La Habra Heights is sponsoring a blood drive on Monday, June 11, 2018 from 2:30 pm – 8:30 pm inside the Park gym. Donating blood is a simple thing to do, and it can make a big difference in the lives of others. Please spread the word about the event. Walk-in donors are welcomed. To set up an appointment, please contact City Hall at 562-694-6302 ext. 222.


The Red Cross will be collecting the following type of blood donations: Whole Blood and Power Red. See the table below for more information.




      WHOLE BLOOD (40-60 MINUTE PROCESS)

POWER RED (1 HOUR 20-30 MINUTE PROCESS)

  • This is the most common type of donation, during which approximately a pint of 'whole blood' is given.
  • The blood is separated into transfusable components – red cells, plasma, platelets and/or cryoprecipitate AHF.
  • This type of blood donation usually takes about an hour, though the actual donation takes about 8-10 minutes.
  • You are eligible to donate "whole blood" every 56 days.


  • Power Red is done with the help of an apheresis machine which collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor.
  • Red cells are the most transfused blood component, and certain blood types are often in short supply
  • Power Red from Type O donors and donors with Rh-negative blood types play a very important role in maintaining blood supply levels.
  • Donors need to meet slightly higher hemoglobin and body height/weight requirements in order to be able to give a Power Red.
  • Power Red takes approximately 30 minutes longer than a whole blood donation and allow you to give two units of red cells.
  • Available in most donation centers and some blood drives.
  • Donors are eligible to give Power Red every 112 days.
