Community Blood Drive At Andrew Toyota Scion

August 13th, 2015 by

Andrew Toyota will be hosting a community blood drive at the dealership on Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 from 10:00AM to 3:00PM. This is an appointment based blood drive. It only takes 15 minutes to save 3 lives! To schedule your appointment, please visit: bcw.edu/andrew 

The need for blood locally remains constant, and donations are needed to offset summer blood shortages. People can donate a pint of blood every 56 days. Donors are encouraged to eat a meal prior to giving blood and drink plenty of water. Photo ID is required at donation time.

Blood donation requirements include a minimum weight of 115 pounds and minimum age of 17. A 16-year old may donate blood with written parental consent. There is no upper age limit for donating blood. Many health conditions and medications do NOT prevent someone from donating blood. People taking insulin, blood pressure, thyroid, and cholesterol medications, aspirin, antidepressants, and hormone replacement can give blood. Tattoos are also okay as long as they are healed and have been done in a reputable tattoo facility.

Please feel free to contact our Internet Sales Manager Shelby Loth at (414) 247-6529 if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for you time and consideration.
