School is out, the July 4 holiday is near and local blood drives continue in full swing this summer. Patients who battle cancer, injuries, burns and blood disorders are counting on blood donors.
A BloodSource drive will run from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, June 29, at Regal Stadium 5, 420 G St. in downtown Davis. Donors will receive a free pass to the movies.
Donating blood is safe, easy and takes about an hour. Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be at least 17 years old (16 with a signed BloodSource parental consent form, available at www.bloodsource.org/HowYouCanHelp/HighSchoolProgram) and be generally healthy. There is no upper age limit for blood donations.
