Calling all Shark Week fin-atics: The American Red Cross and Discovery are partnering for Shark Week and invite community members to dive in to help save lives!
Sharks are vitally important to the health of the planet - just like you play an equally important role in helping keep our national blood supply healthy and strong. The need for blood products doesn’t take a summer break.
Join us at an exciting blood donation opportunity on Sunday, July 17, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at The Living Coast Discovery Center in Chula Vista. All presenting donors at The Living Coast Discovery Center blood drive will receive an exclusive Red Cross Shark Week t-shirt and fin hat, as supplies last, plus free admission to The Living Coast Discovery Center (blood drive appointment required).*
Thanks to Discovery, all those who come to give blood at this blood drive and all those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma at any Red Cross blood drive or donation center from July 1-31, 2022, will automatically be entered for a chance to win an exclusive Shark Week merchandise package. This package includes a beach cruiser bike, smokeless portable fire pit, paddle board, kayak and a $500 gift card to put toward accessories for tons of outdoor adventure.**
Don't let the blood supply take a dip this summer! Whether it’s watching our finned friends on an episode of Shark Week or donating blood at your nearest blood drive or donation center, there are plenty of ways to get your heart pumping this summer. Together, we’ll keep the blood supply steady for patients this summer and beyond.
