“Over the summer, residents responded to the urgent call for blood donations as our region emerged from the most daunting stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their generosity was vital in efforts to replenish our blood reserves ,” Legislator Mulé said. “I’m delighted to once again work with the Coral House and host an autumn blood drive as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that the gift of life is always available.”
Eligible donors must have an ID with a signature or a photo, weigh at least 110 pounds, have had no tattoos in the last 12 months and be ages 16-75 years of age (16-year-old donors must have parental consent.
