The Community of Mason is sponsoring a blood drive Monday, March 28th, from 4-7:30 p.m. This drive will be held in the Bloodmobile outside the Mason County Library.
Make your convenient appointment to give blood at www.UnitedBloodServices.org or by calling the Wesley Nurse, Ann Scarth, at 325-347-5983. With each donation, donors receive a free total cholesterol test and earn points in United Blood Services’ Hero in Me rewards program.
Blood donation takes about an hour from check-in to refreshments. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Fast Track Health History the day they donate. It’s at www.UnitedBloodServices.org, click on the green arrow. Once they complete the health screen, save the barcode on their mobile device or print it out. Bring it to the blood drive.
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian. For more information, visit www.UnitedBloodServices.org.
