If you’ve recovered from COVID-19 or have a family member or friend who has recovered you are in a special position to help Kern County fight this pandemic.

Many people don’t know that the plasma from your blood has antibodies that can help patients fight COVID-19.

From August 31st to September 4th you can help by donating Plasma at both Houchin Community Blood Bank locations. And as a token of appreciation, you’ll receive a $50 gift card, plus be entered into a daily drawing of $250. At the end of the drive, all donors will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing to win $1,000. All prizes will be issued in the form of a Visa gift card.

As the world waits for a vaccine for this deadly virus, we must take action now to help those that have contracted the virus.

For more information on how to donate or to make an appointment, call the Houchin Community Blood Bank hotline at 661-616-2575.

Donate safely to save lives at Houchin Blood Bank and take home some cash courtesy of these fine sponsors: Sangera Subaru, Mercedes-Benz of Bakersfield, Little Caesars and
Stockdale Tile and Floor Center.
