Donors can visit to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are also always welcome throughout the drive. Everyone who attempts to donate will receive a free T-shirt.

Any healthy person age 17 or older (or 16 with parental consent) who weighs at least 110 pounds may be eligible to give blood every 56 days. On average, one out of every seven people entering the hospital will need blood.
