McKINNEY (June 8, 2016) — The American Red Cross is hosting a blood drive at Medical Center of McKinney, 4500 Medical Center Dr., on Thursday, June 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Red Cross will be set up in Classrooms 3 and 4 in the hospital.

Being a blood donor is safe, simple and very fulfilling. Donors can help as many as three different patients with just one donation. Individuals who give blood assure an adequate supply is available – possibly saving someone's life.

Potential donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good general health. People who present to give blood should eat a nourishing meal before donating and must bring a photo ID.
