The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in partnership with OneBlood are organizing a community blood drive and day of service on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in various locations throughout Central Florida. 

Along with a free wellness checkup — which includes blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count, and cholesterol screening — donors will also receive a $20 eGift card and a limited edition Light the World shirt. 

Donors are required to bring valid identification and must be at least 16-years-old — please note that donors who are 16-years-old will need parental permission.

All members of the community are welcome to participate and can go to this link to find a location near you: 

There are two locations in the West Orange and Southwest Orange County area, are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 3001 South Apopka Vineland Road in Orlando, and the church at 13749 Reams Road in Windermere.
