Children’s Hospital Colorado Mobile Blood Drive | October 12th


Blake Street Tavern will be hosting a Children's Hospital Colorado Mobile Blood drive on Friday, October 12th from 8:30AM-12:15PM!

Sign up at: www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0c4aabab2da46-blake6

The process takes about 30 to 45 minutes total, from arrival, paperwork, a brief interview to the actual blood draw. Your contribution makes an incredible difference for our patients and families every day. Without blood, we would not be able to perform many lifesaving procedures.

You will need to have something to eat and hydrate beforehand; we will have snacks available after your donation! Donors will need to bring their government issued ID’s (passport or driver’s ID) to each donation. Please know that 30 minutes of your time could mean a lifetime to a child in need!

We will be sending out an online link 4 weeks from the drive date to start donor sign ups.

You may be eligible to donate blood if you:

  • 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

  • Have not spent 3 months or more in the UK from 1980 to present

  • Answer a series of medical history/lifestyle questions which determine eligibility

Please remember to bring your Government Issued ID (driver's license or passport) to each donation.
