Memorial Blood Centers is Calling All Blood Donors

 

January 16, 2019 (St. Paul, MN) – The number-one reason eligible blood donors don’t donate is because nobody asked them to. So, we’re asking everyone in our community: Will you step up and help save lives?

Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood. Every two 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.

You may be eligible to donate blood if you are:

  • In good health

  • 17 years or older—16 with written Parental Consent (PDF)

  • Free of antibiotics for 24 hours, unless taken for preventative reasons

  • Symptom-free for at least 72 hours following a cold or flu

While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. Visit MBC.ORG to find your nearest community blood drive or donor center.
