Blood drive is Thursday
The Lake Tahoe Community College Associated Student Council will sponsor a community blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday in the Aspen Room near the library.
Appointments are available by calling the student council office at (530) 541-4660, ext. 229. Leave a message with your name, desired time slot, and phone number where you can be reached. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are suggested since there could be a wait. Donors will receive coupons for a pint of Baskin-Robbins ice cream.
To give blood donors must be generally good health and free from cold symptoms for at least 48 hours; be at least 17 years old, or 16 years with parental consent; and weigh at least 110 pounds. There is no age limit to donate blood. Participants must bring a photo ID. Donors should drink plenty of fluid and eat a filling meal before giving blood.
Blood will be drawn by BloodSource, a not-for-profit community blood bank serving Northern and Central California. To learn more about BloodSource, including eligibility, call (800) 995-4420 or visit the Web site at http://www.bloodsource.org.
