Weekend blood drive taking place in Citrus Heights on April 27-28

Sentinel staff report–
A weekend blood drive will be held across from Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights this Saturday and Sunday, with donors to be offered a $10 Fandango movie voucher as a “thank you” for giving blood.

Vitalant, formerly known locally as BloodSource, will hold the blood drive in front of the Men’s Wearhouse at 6177 Sunrise Blvd. Blood donations will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 27 and noon to 4 p.m. on April 28.

To be eligible as a whole blood donor, participants must be at least 18 years old — or as young as 16 with a signed parental consent form — weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and “be in good general health.” Donors also need to bring a photo ID.

Parental consent forms and additional information about eligibility for other types of donations are available at Vitalant’s website.
