We’re hosting a Blood Drive with the Scott & White Blood Center from 9am – 1pm on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. The Scott & White Blood Center is the only local, hospital-based blood center in Central Texas. Your donations stay right here in your community to help your friends and neighbors. Plus, you'll get a free blood donor t-shirt! Donating blood is simple and safe. On average, the total donation process take about 30-45 minutes. During each donation, one pint of blood is collected. The average adult body has between 10 and 12 pints of blood. You must weigh a minimum of 110 pounds. Be sure to eat a good meal and drink plenty of water at least four hours before donating. Please bring a photo ID.
