Blood Drive and BBQ at the Halesite Fire Department on 8/21/15

Thursday, July 23, 2015

Although blood is essential every day, donations tend to drop significantly during the summer months as people go on vacation. Also, donations from high schools and colleges, which account for 25% of regional blood collection, decrease when schools close for the summer.

From organ transplants to heart surgeries, today's advanced medical care relies on blood transfusions. When one person donates a unit of blood, it can be separated into individual components to save multiple lives. Blood donors like you help meet the daily transfusion needs of cancer and surgery patients, accident and burn victims, newborns and mothers delivering babies, AIDS and sickle cell anemia patients, and many more.

So do your part this summer and attend our bi-annual blood drive on Friday 8/21/15 from 3:30-8:00pm! As an added bonus anyone who attends (even if you are unable to donate that day) will be treated to a steak dinner, barbecued by our volunteer firefighters!

All donors must be 17 years of age or older (or 16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and be feeling "in good health" on the day of donation. You must have your photo ID on you, and be prepared to spend about 30-45 minutes in the donation process. No pre-registration needed, although we recommend your come earlier as the line extends once people are getting out of work and returning home.
