Last updated 1/12/2019 at 4:09am

FALLBROOK – Albertsons, 1133 S. Mission Road, is hosting a mobile blood drive in their parking lot in partnership with San Diego Blood Bank, Monday, Jan. 21, from 1 to 6 p.m.

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. Since blood is always needed, volunteers are asked to give blood for patients, such as those going through cancer or trauma.

Donors must meet the eligibility requirements, be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 114 pounds and be in good health. It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids before giving. 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, call (800) 469-7322 or visit
