Last updated 2/16/2018 at 3:24pm



FALLBROOK – Albertsons in Fallbrook will host a mobile blood drive, Feb. 19 from 1- 6 p.m. at the store located at 1133 S. Mission Road

About 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood. One pint of blood, which is the amount volunteers give when they donate blood, can save up to three lives. Approximately, 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood but less than 10 percent do annually. Since blood is always needed, volunteers are asked to give blood for patients, such as those going through cancer or trauma.

Donors must meet be 17 years of age or older. Parental consent is required for 16-year-olds wishing to donate blood. Donors must also be at least 114 pounds and in good health.

It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids before giving. A photo identification must be presented upon signing up to donate.

Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment for their convenience, but walk-ins are also

welcome. To schedule an appointment, please call (619) 469-7322 or visit
