Needles, California: Vitalant will be having a blood drive from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT on Thursday, January 19th, 2023 inside the Needles High School Gymnasium located at 1600 Washington Street.
Vitalant is the nation’s largest independent, nonprofit organization focused exclusively on providing lifesaving blood services. We have a network of about 120 donation centers across the U.S. and host approximately 60,000 blood drives annually.
Vitalant provides blood and special services to patients in about 900 hospitals across the U.S. – millions of people depend on blood donations from our generous volunteer donors.
Vitalant is currently facing a critical blood shortage. Patients need help to ensure blood is available at their time of need.
All blood types are needed, especially type O, A-negative and B-negative red blood cells.
