Reporting Live for Blood Drive: Thursday
June 16, 2008

I will be reporting LIVE outside of our KPRC Local 2 studios this Thursday, June 19th.

KPRC’s annual blood drive will help increase the blood supply this summer, a time when donations tend to decrease. However, the need for more than 900 donations every day remains constant, and individuals are needed to commit for life to help save lives. Less than 5 percent of the population donates blood. Keep in mind….that every donation helps save three lives.

 

All who donate or attempt to donate will receive a commemorative blood drive T-shirt. The donation process takes less than an hour, with the actual donation taking five to 10 minutes.    
 
Donors must be at least 17 years old and 110 pounds, or 16 years old and 122 pounds with parental permission. Donors must be in good general health and have a photo I.D.
