Announcing a new Meetup for YAVO (Young Adult Volunteer Organization)!
What: YAVO Blood Donation Day
When: Sunday, August 7,[masked]:30 AM
Where: Carter BloodCare Donor Center
3959 Belt Line Rd
Addison, TX 75001
When you get to Carter BloodCare (north side of Beltline Road) you will have to go through two doors. You won't be able to see the facility from the outer window, so just look for the door. There is a sign you can see from the street.
If you are unable to donate, you can always come for moral support or for the lunch to meet other YAVO members. We will be picking a place to have lunch after we are done donating. Lunch is optional for those that want to do something afterwards.
Blood Donation Requirements:
-Bring Donor Card/Driver's License
