NBPD Blood Drive scheduled for January 30

The Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD) is holding a Red Cross Blood Drive on Monday, Jan. 30 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at its headquarters located at 870 Santa Barbara Drive, Newport Beach. Appointments are still remaining.

There are two types of donations you can sign up for if you would like to give: Blood and Power Red. Blood is the most common type of donation during which approximately a pint of “whole blood” is given. This usually takes about an hour. Power Red collects the red cells, but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have Type A Negative, B Negative, or O blood.

Appointments are required. To schedule your appointment, sign up online at, or call 1.800.redcross. For more information and to view appointment times, go here.

If you donate blood between now and January 31, you will automatically be entered for a chance to win an exciting trip for you and a guest to Super Bowl LVII in Phoenix, Ariz. This includes travel, hotel, a $500 gift card, pre-game activities and more. Terms apply. For more information, visit
