Giving blood isn’t spooky at all — but this Thursday, all blood donors will receive a Halloween T-shirt AND a $20 eGift card!

This Thursday 10/21 at Harris Teeter Antiquity from 12 pm to 6 pm

Every three months the Lake Norman Small Business Network organizes a community blood drive with OneBlood. The Big Red Bus is parked in front of the store at the Antiquity Harris Teeter, 21720 Catawba Avenue, Cornelius, NC 28031.

Who can give blood?

OneBlood welcomes donations from donors 16 years old and older. (Note: 16-year-old donors must present a signed permission form from their parent or guardian before the donation.)

Don’t guess about the restrictions for giving blood—OneBlood requests that you do not self-defer. Check here for additional information about medications, high blood pressure, diabetes and other potential issues. Contact OneBlood for more specific information. Or simply show up on Thursday, you may be surprised, an issue that prevented you from giving blood in the past, may not be an issue today. However, there is little to no waiting when you schedule your appointment.

Schedule an Appointment

There will be two buses at Harris Teeter Antiquity Cornelius: one for giving Whole Blood and one for giving Double Red Cells.
