“It’s the New Year, and people are making resolutions for positive change. We also know that giving the “gift of life” can be emotionally and physically rewarding. This year, we hope even more will add a resolution, to help by donating blood,” said Chris Sorensen, Director of Community Relations and Development for the Central California Blood Center. “This is the time when we particularly need a great many to give, including those who perhaps have never donated. We hope they will also try to help the blood center and patients in valley hospitals for the very first time.”
Blood donation takes less than one hour to complete. Donors must be in good general health, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 years old with written parental consent). Senior citizens are encouraged to donate, as there is no upper age limit. Donors should eat a good meal and drink plenty of water within 4 hours prior to their donation. Donors can give blood every eight weeks. Photo ID and Social Security Number are required at donor registration.
The Central California Blood Center is the sole provider of blood and blood products for the 31 hospitals in Fresno, Tulare, Madera, Kings and Mariposa Counties and must collect between 5,000 to 6,000 pints of blood a month to meet the needs of our Valley community.
