Donate at the next Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center blood drive. Visit the American Red Cross website; enter sponsor code "7701."
Donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more.
Our donor history form and mini-physical tell donors quickly if there is any reason why they should not give. Those who question their ability to donate should sign up and talk to a blood service representative.
Occasionally, people who want to donate blood must be temporarily deferred. This does not mean they can never give blood again. In nearly every case, after a short period of time they will be able to donate.
