Help patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) by donating blood Tues., Oct. 23 at St. Brendan School, 238 S. Manhattan Pl., from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Donations will aid patients at CHLA, which requires 2,000 units of blood each month to meet the needs of its young patients.

Donors should be well-hydrated and at least 17 years old and 120 pounds or more and must have a valid photo ID.

Judy Koempel, who organizes the event, is a parent at St. Brendan and also has worked at CHLA for over 15 years as a pediatric intensive care nurse. Judy Koempel’s goal is to establish a biannual blood drive each spring and fall and also to help show students at St. Brendan how they can help other children in Los Angeles.
