Volunteer blood donors play a vital role in the community health care system. Blood donors are needed every day to ensure the right blood product is on the shelf the moment it is needed. It is difficult to predict when and exactly how much blood is needed, which is why it is important for volunteer blood donors to make blood donations on a regular basis.
Eligible donors must be 16 years of age or older, weigh at least 120 pounds, and be in general good health. Donors should also eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating.
