Blood drive to be held at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel
BloodSource will hold a blood drive Monday to meet the community need for blood and blood products.
The blood drive is sponsored by the Barton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. BloodSource provides blood to Barton Memorial Hospital.
Donating blood 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) and be generally healthy. There is no upper age limit for blood donations. Donors must bring a photo ID and should drink plenty of fluids before donating. Potential marrow donors can register for Be the Match through BloodSource.
The drive will be held from noon to 6 p.m. in the first-floor ballroom of Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel, 4130 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe. Walk-ins are welcome. Blood drive participants will receive a parking validation for the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel parking lot at the blood drive check in.
