Houchin Community Blood Bank and the Kern County Fair partnered up for their 7th Annual Pint for a Pass Blood Drive from now through September 22nd. Donors at both donor centers and mobile drives will be able to enjoy FREE adult admission passes to this year’s Kern County Fair, running September 18th through 29th, by simply rolling up a sleeve and donating a pint of blood or other needed blood products.

The donor centers are located at 5901 Truxtun Avenue and 11515 Bolthouse Drive in Bakersfield.  Hours are 9 am to 6 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 11 am to 7 pm Thursday, and 8 am to 2 pm on Saturday. A current list of mobile drives is available at www.hcbb.com or by calling 661-323-4222.

“Everyone loves the great Kern County Fair, so we are thrilled to be able to offer our donors a free 'Ticket to Fun' again this year. The passes really help to motivate new and repeat donors at a time when back to school activities are pulling them in other directions. Although mobile drives have been very successful all summer, donor center visits remain low.  The biggest needs are O+ and O- blood, AB plasma and platelets of any kind," says Brad A. Bryan, CEO of Houchin Community Blood Bank, “Our annual Pint for a Pass Blood Drive is a fun way for Houchin to build the blood supply at the end of summer."
