Pacific Palisades Blood Drive a Success

The second annual community-wide blood drive, hosted by Amalfi Estates and the Pacific Palisades Chamber of Commerce, was held on Aug. 10 at the library.

Last year, Amalfi hoped to reach 37 donors, but only 26 people were able to give blood. This year’s target was 37 to 50, Jade Devot’e, executive assistant, told the News in July.

Thanks to help from Palisades residents, “more than 50 people donated blood” in August, Devot’e reported.

Community Council Area 6 candidate Eric Marshal wrote on NextdoorPalisades, “Just wanted to post how proud I am of our community—the turnout for blood drive was so high that people were being turned away! Huge thanks also to the American Red Cross and all the sponsors for making this happen!”

The News echoes his sentiments.
