Memorial Blood Centers is Calling All Life-Savers

 

March 15, 2017 (St. Paul, MN) – Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood. Every 2 seconds someone needs blood – from heart transplant and cancer patients to accident victims and premature babies. The need for blood is constant, but the supply is not. Only volunteer blood donors can make a life-saving difference to someone in need.

Step up to give blood at a blood drive or donor center in your neighborhood and help save lives. Donating blood is convenient and safe when you are:

    • In good health
    • Free of antibiotics for 24 hours, unless taken daily for a skin condition
    • Symptom-free for at least 3 days following a cold or a flu
    • 17 years or older—16 with written parental consent (form available at MBC.ORG)

While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. To register for a blood drive, go online to MBC.ORG or contact the sponsoring organization directly. Visit MBC.ORG and search blood drives to find the most up-to-date blood drive list in your community. You can also donate at a local donor center, sponsor your own blood drive, or gather friends to donate together at a Donor Day event.
