Family Fitness and Wellness Fair is hosting a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 29 at the Killeen Convention and Conference Center, 3601 S. W.S. Young Drive, on the Carter BloodCare bus parked at the center. For more information or to schedule an appointment time, call Vhonda Gilmore at 254-336-1684.

Carter BloodCare urges eligible blood donors to consider giving two to three times a year. Whole blood can be donated every 56 days. Other types of blood donations can be given more frequently.

Eat a nutritious meal and drink plenty of water at least an hour before giving blood. All donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, feel well on the day of donation, and present a government-issued photo ID each time they give blood.
