The next Lakeway Community Blood Drive will be from 8 a.m. through noon on Saturday, July 16 at the Lakeway Activity Center located at 105 Cross Creek. Please consider supporting others in Central Texas by donating blood to help save lives. Organizers give prospective donors with appointments priority during the donation process. Walk-ins are always welcome, too – and needed. To schedule an appointment or for more information, contact the coordinators at lakewaycommunityblooddrive@gmail.com or visit www.wrbdonor.org and search for Group Code A197.

The We Are Blood website also includes useful information regarding eligibility and answers to other frequently asked questions. If you have had a recent vaccination or are considering one, have traveled internationally, or are currently taking antibiotics or other medications, take a look to see what might – or might not – impact your ability to donate.

As a reminder, blood drives are held in Lakeway in January, March, May, July, September, and November - on the third Saturday. Lakeway blood drive donations are distributed to over 40 hospitals and clinics across ten (10) Central Texas counties to help those most in need. To be eligible, donors need to be in generally good health, at least 17 years old and weigh 115 pounds or more for whole blood donations. Photo identification is required. Organizers recommend that donors eat a good meal and drink plenty of liquids before donating.
