Medic is a nonprofit organization that supplies 27 area hospitals with volunteer donations. Medic representatives say there is a need for all blood types. Potential donors must be at least 17 years of age and weigh at least 110 pounds.
Donors should not fast before arriving. Medic suggests instead that donors eat a meal and drink fluids approximately three hours prior to donating.
Participants are asked to present photo identification and a list of current medications.
