Memorial Blood Centers Calls for Blood Donors to Spring into Action
 
04/19/2019 08:42 AM
April 18, 2019 (St. Paul, MN) - Local blood bank Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood this spring. 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.

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
At Memorial Blood Centers, we recommend donating once a season (four times per year). May is a great time to make your spring donation, at one of the following public blood drives. 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.
