Westside Community Picnic Blood Drive
Westside Community Picnic is hosting a blood drive from 5:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at Legacy High School located at 1263 N. Main St. on the Carter BloodCare bus. For more information or to schedule an appointment time, contact Tiffany Smith at (214) 554-4827.
There is no substitute for human blood. Each person, even with the same blood type, gives a unique blood donation. A wide diversity of blood donors is also necessary to maintain a safe and sufficient blood supply.
Remember to eat a nutritious meal and drink plenty of water one to two hours before giving blood. All donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, feel well on the day of donation, and present a government-issued photo ID each time they give blood.
Potential blood donors may volunteer beginning at age 16 with parental consent; 17-year-olds may give independently and there is no upper age limit for donating blood. For more information on donor eligibility and to make an appointment, call 1-800-366-2834 or visit carterbloodcare.org.
