Nearly 39,000 units of blood are needed every day to save the lives of patients all across the country, with 30 million blood components being transfused every year. Just one donation can save the lives of up to three people.
If you are planning to donate, please make sure that prior to your donation, you get a good night’s sleep, drink an extra 16-oz of nonalcoholic fluids (preferably water), and eat a healthy meal before your donation. Also, remember to bring two forms identification.
Everyone who donates blood will be given $8 in Diner Bucks to use for lunch or dinner at the Starliner Diner. Walk-ins are welcome, but those who would like to schedule an appointment time can do so online.
