Donating blood is safe, easy, and takes about an hour. Donors must weigh at least 120 pounds, be at least 16 years old (16 and 17-year-old donors must have a signed parental/guardian permission form), and be in general good health. There is no upper age limit for blood donations. Donors must bring a photo ID and should eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids before giving blood.
