Children’s Hospital Colorado Mobile Blood Drive at Edgewater Bellco

Bellco will be hosting a Children’s Hospital Colorado Mobile Blood Drive at its Sloan’s Lake Branch (at 1931 Sheridan Blvd.) this coming Saturday, July 16th from 9:00am – 12:45pm. They’re looking for as many donors as possible to meet Children’s Colorado’s surgery and transfusion needs.

Individuals may be eligible to donate blood if they:

  • Are in good health
  • Have not donated blood in the last 56 days
  • Are symptom free of a cold or flu
  • Are at least 18 years of age, or 17 with written parental consent
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds
  • Have not delivered a baby in the last six weeks
  • Have no history of, or risk factors for, HIV/AIDS
  • Have not had any tattoos or body piercings within the last year
  • Have not traveled to a malaria risk area within the last year
  • If you have traveled to Mexico, the Caribbean, and or Central or South America in the last 28 days, we are asking that you do not donate due to the Zika Virus infection until it has been more than 28 days after your return to the United States
  • Answer a series of medical history/lifestyle questions which determine eligibility

Whether or not people plan to donate, they are still invited to join Bellco at the event for refreshments, a Teddy Bear Clinic for the kids, and a chance to win one of five $100 Visa® gift cards.
