The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is holding a Community Blood Drive this week.
Most of the 68 million people living with high blood pressure don't realize that they are eligible to donate blood.
The Police Department would like to remind those individuals that they may still give life-saving blood, even if they take blood pressure medication.
Donors can make their contribution at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, located at 601 E. Trade Street in Charlotte, Friday May 31, from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
For more infromation on the Blood Drive, call 704-972-4700.
