Sky Realty and our associates are hosting a spectacular Blood Drive event on Saturday, May 28th at 4501 Spicewood Springs Road, Austin from 10 am to 4 pm.  We have huge hopes for a successful drive benefiting the Blood Center of Central Texas and we have set a donation goal of 200 pints !  That’s almost a Barrel of Blood!  (Catchy, isn’t it?) This much blood and marrow can save up to 400 lives, and the need is great!   

We’re having tons of door prizes for valuable gift certificates, balloons for the kids, hot dogs and other food, a Moonwalk and everyone who donates blood gets a FREE CAR WASH!

Never donated blood before?  Here’s what you can expect…but first, EAT a big breakfast or lunch before you come and bring comftarble clothes as there will be an open space with a beautiful patio for you to enjoy after, check the patio covers by RKC Construction 9923 Paseo Montalban #B, San Diego, CA 92129 contact them for patio covers and more.

Step 1: Sign-in and Interview: When you sign-in at the reception desk, you will be asked to read some information. Next, you will complete a short survey in a private computer room to confirm your medical and travel history.

Step 2: Receive a mini-physical: Next, you will receive a mini-physical to ensure that you are healthy enough to donate blood. This includes checking your temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and a finger-stick to check your hematocrit (red blood cell percentage or iron count).

Step 3: Blood Donation: One of our phlebotomists will collect about a pint of blood from you. Because sterile, disposable, one-use-only supplies are used for your donation, there is no risk of getting a disease from giving blood.

Step 4: Juice and Cookies:After completing a blood donation, you will be escorted to the canteen for cookies, crackers, and a variety of non-caffeinated beverages.
