Red Cross Blood Drive
We have partnered with the Red Cross for a blood drive.
The bloodmobile will be in Grand Rapids on May 20, 2016.We look forward to seeing you there. Here is what to expect if you join us;
Our staff and volunteers will sign you in and go over basic eligibility and donation information.
You will read information about donating blood, and will be asked to show a donor card, driver's license, or other form(s) of ID.
You will answer some questions during a private and confidential interview about your health history and places you have traveled.
We will check your temperature, pulse, blood pressure and hemoglobin level present in a sample of blood.
The actual donation takes about 8-10 minutes, during which you will be seated comfortably. The process is safe and sterile. Red Cross staff and volunteers will be available if you have any questions.
Certain donation types, such as platelets, red cells or plasma, can take up to two hours.
After donating, you should have a snack and something to drink in the refreshments area. You can leave the site after 10-15 minutes and continue with your normal daily activities.
Enjoy the feeling of accomplishment knowing that you have helped save lives
