Mason, TX- When you plan your errands this week, why not add “save a life” to the list. Sound like a superhero comic book or movie? It’s not; you can save a life between picking up dry cleaning and buying groceries by stopping at the Mason High School Blood Drive on Tuesday, October 22nd from 11am- 2pm.
“The summer season is a difficult time to maintain the local blood supply with many people out-of-town or on different schedules,” said Linda Grace, Sr. Donor Recruitment Representative of United Blood Services. “However, the hospitals are always in need of blood for patients. Let’s work together to replenish the supply from the summer lull.”
Make your convenient appointment to give blood at www.UnitedBloodServices.org, sponsor code: MasonHS, or by calling Justin McFarland at 347-1122. With each donation, donors receive a free total cholesterol test, a Chick-fil-A coupon, and earn points in United Blood Services’ Hero in Me rewards program!
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
