You’re Invited: IRWD Hosts 2014 Blood Drive

Irvine Ranch Water District will be holding its annual spring blood drive on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The UC Irvine bloodmobile will be located in the parking lot adjacent to IRWD headquarters at 15600 Sand Canyon Avenue, Irvine. The public is invited to participate. IRWD has held blood drives for more than 20 years.

This drive will benefit Orange County’s only Level I Trauma Center. All donors will receive their choice of a t-shirt or a pint of Baskin Robbins ice cream.

In order to donate, donors must:

 

  • Be 17 years of age or older and weigh more than 110 pounds
  • Have a valid photo ID (driver's license, passport, employee or student ID are acceptable)
  • Be in good health
  • Eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donation
  • Finish all antibiotics prior to your donation and be symptom-free from any infection or illness

All prospective donors will complete a donor history questionnaire and blood work each time they donate. They must not have had a tattoo within the past year and provide a list of specific destinations and time periods they have traveled outside of the United State in the previous year.

Potential donors may go to https://www.healthcare.uci.edu/blooddrive/Default.aspx?id=irwd to register. Appointments are available every 15 minutes.
