Bloodmobile on Taft Loredo Drive- Parking Meters (south of David Kinley Hall) Department of Economics Blood Drive

Economics Blood Drive

We are going to once again use the blood mobile which will be located on Taft-Laredo Drive parked at the meters. If you donated last year, you are already in the system and you do not need to pre-register; however, if you have never donated, you will have to be screened, typed and your iron levels checked. This typically takes 5 to 10 minutes. Once you are approved to donate blood, the process takes about an hour, give or take.  To schedule your appointment ahead of time to give blood click here otherwise show up anytime between the hours of 10:30 am – 2:00 pm.

All blood types are needed for donation but if your blood type is O – (the rarest of blood types) you are a universal donor and this blood type is always in high demand. As an O Positive donor you are incredibly important to maintaining the blood supply in our community as well. O Positive is the most common blood type and therefore needed by so many patients.
