The Santa Monica Red Cross needs a transfusion of nails, lumber and labor — stat.

The branch will be closed for the month of May and into June for renovations. The goal is to make the branch more user friendly, said Julie Thomas, CEO of the Santa Monica branch.

The location rejuvenation will include a customer service kiosk so visitors can schedule blood donations or training classes. There will also be more space added for volunteers.

The office will be closed until July 8, 2013, during that time there will be no blood drives on site.

Alternative locations for donating blood can be found at redcrossblood.org/make-donation or by calling (800) 733-2767.
