Poly’s 6th Annual Blood Drive

Huntington Hospital’s Blood Mobile will be coming to Poly on May 19th. There are 24 appointments available, and they will also be accepting walk-ins (depending on staff availability.) Sign up for a time slot here!

Alternatively, the blood donation center is open every weekday and takes appointments and walk-ins. Call (626) 397-5422 to schedule an appointment. Make sure to let them know you are donating on behalf of Poly!

Basic Donor requirements:
  • Donor must be at least 16 years of age. 16-year-olds must have a written Huntington Hospital parental consent which you can get from Ms. Williams.

  • The donor must weigh at least 110 pounds. 
  • If you get a tattoo in the 2 weeks prior to your appointment you cannot donate.
