      As many as three lives may be saved each time a person donates blood, and all donations stay local to help people in this region.

     Donors with an O-negative blood type are particularly welcome, as their blood can be used for any patient.

     To donate blood, individuals must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health. People with a cold, sore throat, fever, flu or fever blisters or who are taking antibiotics may not donate. Donors should eat a balanced meal before giving blood.

     In addition to scheduled blood drives, donors are welcome at Marsh Regional's collection centers: 102 E. Ravine Road, Kingsport and 1996 W. State St., Bristol.
