Blood donors will be entered into a Community Blood Bank drawing for two kayaks and paddles to be selected at the end of May.

Facing the building from the parking lot, blood donors may enter the Visitor Entrance (the right door under the green awning) beside the BPU Customer Service Department, sign in at the window and take the elevator to the first floor.

Donors will need a picture ID such as a blood donor card or driver’s license. Donors must be at least 17 years old and in good health. Lunch will be provided free-of-charge to blood donors.
