Posted

With the critical need for blood ongoing, the city of Apache Junction will hold its next blood drive 6:30-10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10. The Vitalant bloodmobile will be in the City Hall parking lot, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.

Donors are reminded to bring a photo identification and are encouraged to drink plenty of water and eat a light meal prior to donating, according to a release.

Donating blood deeply impacts lives; be a hero by donating and sharing the information. There is a great need for type O blood. To schedule a donation time, go to bloodhero.com (sponsor code CityofAJ). Select “Locate a blood drive,” search by sponsor and type in “City of Apache Junction.” Select “City of Apache Junction Bloodmobile in the parking lot” for Aug. 10 and choose a time, the release states.

Also, those who donate blood through Sept. 10 will be entered in a contest to win a 2021 VW Tiguan S donated by the Valley Volkswagen dealers.

While the appointment can take up to 50 minutes, actual donation time is approximately five to 10 minutes. Potential donors will be asked a series of questions to determine their eligibility to participate. For questions or to schedule at appointment, call 877-258-4825.
