UPDATE: The City of Santa Maria says the blood drive has been moved to next week.
The City of Santa Maria along with Vitalant is hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, March 5.
Organizers say the Vitalant bloodmobile will be located in a parking lot between the lawn bowling green and the Paul Nelson Aquatics Center along South McClelland Street. Directly across from the Santa Maria Public Library.
Donations will be collected from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Organizers say while all donations are encouraged, donors with Type O-negative are especially needed because O-negative red cells can be transfused to anyone.
