American Red Cross Blood Drive

Red Cross Blood Drive announcement with link to more information

Give Blood. Save a life!

 

WHEN? Saturday, May 18, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Towner Hall

WHY?  Giving blood truly is giving the gift of life. Every unit of whole blood can save 3 lives. In Arizona alone, 300 blood donors are needed every day to meet the needs of hospitals in the state.

QUALIFICATIONS?  You have to be at least 16 years old (16 and 17 year olds need parental consent) to give, you have to weigh at least 110 pounds, and you must be in good health. On the other end of the age spectrum, in Arizona, there is no age limit for blood donors.

HOW LONG? It takes only about ten minutes to give a pint of blood, but the checking-in process takes a little time. You should plan to be here about an hour. Make sure you eat a good meal before donating and increase your intake of water the day before and the day of the drive. Also, be sure to bring a photo ID with you.

HOW TO SIGN UP?  Reserve your time slot early.

The reservation times are every 15 minutes from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
