The City of Coronado and the American Red Cross have scheduled a 10th blood drive at the Coronado Community Center on Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To schedule an appointment, log on to and enter sponsor code: CityBD. All blood donations are now tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Sign up now to give.

The Red Cross and the City thank all who donated during 2020. Red Cross officials put together a chart with the cumulative results for the year. They hope to continue the positive results into 2021.

At the December blood drive, the American Red Cross reported 30 donors gave blood, nine of them first-time donors. A total of 31 units was collected, more than the goal that was set for the day. Those donations could go on to save up to 93 lives.
