LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (August 2020) - Outlets of Little Rock (OutletsofLittleRock.com) will host a blood donation drive in partnership with Arkansas Blood Institute on Saturday, August 29, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Blood mobiles will be located in the parking lot for walk-ups and appointments. Organizers will ensure all donors are socially distanced and there will be ample distancing space for those waiting in the parking lot of the center. Additionally, all blood, platelet, and plasma donations will be tested for the COVID-19 antibody.

“As the need for blood donations continues to grow, we are pleased to again partner with The Arkansas Blood Institute on this vital effort,” says Teresa Deen, General Manager of Outlets of Little Rock.

Blood donation is safe and critically important, despite concerns surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19).

Arkansas Blood Institute is following recommendations and guidelines set forth by the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and AABB (formerly American Association of Blood Banks). Arkansas Blood Institute is committed to maintaining the safest standards for blood collection, testing and transfusion.

Donor centers and blood drives practice rigorous safety and cleanliness standards and have instituted additional cleaning methods, decontaminating work and common areas and equipment frequently.

In addition, phlebotomy and donor services staff will wear masks and donor centers and mobile blood drives have been adapted to allow for social distancing. All staff and donors will also have their temperatures taken before starting work or entering the facility, to ensure only healthy individuals are present.

Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments can be made by visiting YourBloodInstitute.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/337179 or calling 877-340-8777.
