Blood donors must be at least 17, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, feel well the day of donation, and not have donated whole blood in the previous 56 days.
All those who arrive to give blood will receive one of a selection of gifts, including T-shirts, ball caps, and the Buddy Blood Drive stuffed character.
