Central Christian Church will be host to a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. Friday.

To make an appointment to give, call (800) 733-2767.

Blood donors must be in good health and feeling well at the time of donation.

They also must be at least 17 years old — 16 with parental consent — and weigh at least 110 pounds.

To prepare for a donation, make sure to drink plenty of fluids on the day of the donation.

Wear something comfortable to the appointment and make sure clothing sleeves can be rolled above the elbow easily.

If possible, eat plenty of iron-rich foods in the weeks prior to a donation.

Bring a list of current medications, as some prescriptions may disqualify donors from giving.

Bring a donor card and driver’s license to the appointment.
