The folks at the Maine Blood Center in Bangor are once again holding their Bangor State Fair Wristband Blood Drive. Anyone donating blood on thursdays in July, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, at the Maine Donor Center on Union Street, will receive a ticket for free admission and rides at the fair.The rules for those wishing to donate are also a little different this year. In the past a donor had to be 17-years-old, but now 16-year-olds can donate with parental consent.One other change, if you recently got a tatoo at an establishment licensed in the state of Maine, you can donate blood immediately. In the past people were required to wait one year.Heather Babcock, a donor recruiter at the Maine Blood Center, says she’s hoping for a big donor turnout. She’s urging those who would like to take part in this years event in July to call and make an appointment. The number to call is 207-262-8797.This years blood drive is in honor of Maggie Rudnicki, a 10-month old girl from Levant. Maggie suffers from a rare blood disorder called diamond blackfan anemia. It reqiuires her to undergo blood transfusions every 2-3 months.
