Holiday Blood Drive At Andrew Toyota Scion

November 20th, 2015 by

Andrew Toyota Scion will be hosting a holiday blood drive at the dealership on Monday, December 7th, 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

 

It is very important that you keep your appointment and be on time to ensure that we can get the maximum number of donations done during the blood drive schedule.

 

The need for blood locally remains constant, and donations are needed to offset winter 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.

 

Since 2014, Andrew Toyota Scion staff members and customers have saved over 165 lives through dealership blood drives. With this event, we hope to reach our goal of 210 lives saved from 2014 to 2015.

 

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. With your help, we will make a difference in Milwaukee.
