April 15, 2020, El Segundo, CA – Pacific Retail Capital Partners (PRCP), a premier operating and development group of mixed-use retail-led properties, announced a collective humanitarian effort across their portfolio of shopping centers. All PRCP properties have partnered with various organizations to host blood drives and promote local opportunities for blood donations over the coming weeks. As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases throughout the country continue to rise, these buildings offer spaces large enough to promote social distancing of staff, donors, and volunteers during a blood drive. The centers also offer significant connectivity and are using this reach to connect their communities with opportunities that support healthcare workers and neighbors in need during this time.
“During this time of crisis, it’s even more important for our industry to find new ways to support our communities,” said Najla Kayyem, Senior Vice President of Marketing for PRCP. “We are aware of the critical role our shopping centers play in the neighborhoods they serve, and our teams continue to work proactively, shifting efforts to fulfill immediate needs and to continue being a hub for resources and human connection during this difficult time.”
Drives will utilize stringent protocols and scheduled appointments to meet all CDC recommendations and state mandates. Each blood drive has the potential to impact 90 lives and most centers have seen appointments fully booked within 48 hours. The need for blood donations has not slowed down and the CDC encourages people who are well to continue to donate blood if they are able. Many locations will be offering multiple dates for blood drives to increase availability of services.
