Eligible donors can enter a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
The new monthly CMH Regional Health blood drive schedule began in June. It maintains the traditional schedule of every second Wednesday of the month from noon to 6:30 p.m. It also continues to include apheresis for platelet and plasma donations.
Donors can park in the visitors’ parking lot and enter through the main entrance on the lower level. Welcome desk volunteers can direct you to the conference room on the first floor.
