Donors must be 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and provide a picture ID at the time of registration. Although walk-ins are accepted, donors are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment prior to the event, so that the blood drive will move forward efficiently. This allows reduces wait times for those giving blood.
As a reminder, Danielle Edwards, granddaughter of ACH employee Diane Lucas, was diagnosed in September 2007 with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia last September. She recently suffered a setback that has left her in dire need of whole blood and blood platelets.
â€œPlease consider a donation, Danielle and so many others have such great need,â€ said Lucas.
