Cypress Sawmill Festival blood drive begins Monday
United Blood Services is kicking off its annual Cypress Sawmill Festival blood drive Monday through Wednesday at the United Blood Services donor center located at 1234 David Drive, Suite 102, in Morgan City.
The blood drive will include a special one-day event from 3 to 8 p.m. April 1 at Walmart in Bayou Vista.
Donors will receive a limited print Cypress Sawmill Festival Blood drive T-shirt and a voucher for a free ride bracelet at the festival while supplies last.
Donors can also go to www.UnitedBloodServices.org the day of their donation and click on the “Health History Questionnaire” button to save time. This allows donors to complete the interview portion of their donation online.
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 year’s old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional health/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 years of age must have signed permission from a parent or guardian. Donors receive a free cholesterol test. A photo ID is required to donate.
