Red Cross must collect approximately 13,000 units a day to meet the country’s demand. 

More than 150 blood drives have been canceled in November and December due to severe cold weather on the east coast. Several blood drives have been scheduled across Southern California over the next couple of weeks.

You can visit the Torrance Blood Donation center located at 2814 Sepulveda Blvd.
