Select Zaxby’s restaurants are hosting a summer blood drive to boost the community’s blood supply. Donors can share their power to save lives and receive a FREE Big Zax Snak Meal and a voucher for a FREE movie ticket!
The drive will take place on Thursday, August 18 from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Big Red Bus will be at 1004 Peterson Ave. S in Douglas, Ga., among other locations in nearby areas. For locations and details, visit oneblood.org/zaxby’s. For appointments, visit oneblooddonor.org, or call 1.888.9.DONATE (1.888.936.6283). Appointments are honored; walk-ins are welcome.
All donors also receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and a cholesterol screening!
Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org.
One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused into a patient within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
