Urgent Call for Blood Donors at Icon Cinema Blood Drive


SAN ANGELO, TX – Blood supplies are critically low following the Memorial Day weekend, prompting an urgent call for donors, according to Vitalant, a blood donation center in town. 

A community blood drive will occur at Icon Cinema on Friday, May 31, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Blood donors are needed immediately to replenish the depleted supplies. Those who donate between May 24 and May 31 will receive an exclusive “Givin' is Groovy” T-shirt, the first in Vitalant’s 2024 “Decades” series. The T-shirt is redeemable by email while supplies last. Additional details are available at vitalant.org/groovy70sdonor.

Eligible donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in good health. Female donors aged 16 to 22 must meet specific height and weight requirements. Sixteen-year-old donors must present a minor donor permit signed by a parent or guardian, which can be found on the Vitalant website.

The Icon Cinema blood drive will offer donors a T-shirt via email, two movie admissions via gift card, and a free sandwich and breakfast item courtesy of Chick-fil-A. Appointments are encouraged and can be made by texting Linda at 325-656-2645, calling 877-258-4825, or visiting www.Vitalant.org.
