The next Lakeway Community Blood Drive will be Saturday, November 16 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Lakeway Activity Center located at 105 Cross Creek in Lakeway. The community's participation is always appreciated. Donors will receive a coupon for a free side item from a local eatery.
Organizers give prospective donors with appointments priority during the donation process. Appointments fill fast, but walk-ins are always welcome, too – and needed. There will be ample personnel from We Are Blood available to do blood draws.If you're interested in being added to the list or for information, contact the coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.wrbdonor.org and search for Group Code A197.
The We Are Blood website also includes useful information regarding eligibility and answers to other frequently asked questions. If you’ve had a recent vaccination or are considering one, have traveled internationally or are currently taking antibiotics or other medications, take a look to see what might – or might not - impact your ability to donate. In order to be eligible, donors need to be in generally good health, at least 17 years old and weigh 115 pounds or more for whole blood donations. Photo identification is required. Organizers recommend donors eat a good meal and drink plenty of liquids before donating.
