Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many blood drives have been cancelled and there are fewer available blood donors. A blood shortage could impact patients who depend on lifesaving blood to survive. If you are healthy and can safely leave home, please consider donating blood.
Other great ways to help others include:
- Check in with a senior citizen or loved one who is isolated through facebook or with a good old fashioned phone call.
- Check with your local blood bank on how you can safely donate blood -- The Red Cross is reporting significant shortages.
- Check with a senior service center near you on other ways to serve the elderly including safe food deliveries.
- Volunteer at a local food bank.
- Visit Serve.ca.gov, California Volunteers, and fema.gov/coronavirus/how-to-help for more ways you can make a difference.
