The American Red Cross delivers blood to an area inaccessible to vehicles in Houston.
The Bloodmobile will be parked on Morningside Drive by 13th Street. There will be free parking on 13th street (behind Metlox) and free valet complimentary parking at Shade Hotel for donors during the event.
All are encouraged to sign up with the Red Cross for a time to give blood. Walk-ins are welcome or may call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) for availability.
"The need is real, the American Red Cross is there to deliver - we just need to pump the blood," said Kelly Stroman, executive director of the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business and Professionals Association. "If you've never donated blood, this is the time to start."
Meanwhile, Manhattan Beach's city-wide drive to aid Cleveland, Texas will continue as donations are accepted on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
