**To be eligible to donate you MUST make an appointment PRIOR to NOON on Friday, June 19th, while appointments last - appointments are limited, once all slots are full, we will not be able to take any more. Walk Ups are not permitted. That simply helps donor flow going as smoothly as possible for a BLood Drive of this size.
A confirmation postcard will be sent to donors who make phone appointments. A confirmation email will be sent to donors who make online appointments. Donors - Please bring the confirmation to the blood drive.
To donate blood you must be in good general health, at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more. In PA and NJ, 16-year-olds may donate blood with parental consent.
Have a Tattoo? If you got a tattoo in a state or tattoo shop that is NOT regulated, you have to wait 12 months to donate. A regulated facility means they use sterile needles and ink that is not reused. Cosmetic tattoos applied in a licensed establishment in a regulated state using sterile needles and ink that is not reused is acceptable. There are 40 states that currently regulate tattoo facilities. For more information on tattoo requirements, CLICK HERE.
