date: 07/06/2010

time: 1:00 - 6:00 p.m.

place: Lake Nona Information Center 9588 Narcoossee Road, Orlando, FL 32827

Florida Blood Center’s (FBC) Big Red Bus will be parked at the Lake Nona Information Center on Tuesday, July 6th from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. There is no substitute for blood and a critical number of voluntary donations are required every day to meet the area’s needs. Because of the Lake Nona community’s overwhelming support, FBC is bringing the bus out to Lake Nona for the third time this year.

The entire procedure, from completing a short medical history to drawing the blood and resting afterwards with refreshments, takes less than an hour. Blood donation is safe and painless, and healthy people can donate every eight weeks. All blood donors will receive a free mini-physical that checks blood pressure, cholesterol, iron level and more.

No appointment is necessary, but if you would like to schedule an appointment click here.
