Get a discounted membership to MOLAA with a blood donation, Tuesday

In partnership with the Red Cross, The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is hosting a free blood drive to help it replenish its supplies.

The drive will be held in the parking lot of the museum on Tuesday, Jan. 5 and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations are required. To book your appointment visit the Red Cross website, here, and enter “MOLAA” as the sponsor code.

MOLAA is offering a 20% discount on all membership levels if, after you give blood, you sign-up onsite. If you’re already a member, you’ll receive a one-month extension on your current museum membership.

Each blood donation will also be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. For more information, click here, and to streamline your donation experience, you can complete a pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire by clicking here.

For those who miss this drive, the Red Cross and MOLAA will hold a second blood drive Tuesday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
