Make a difference by donating blood at the Reinbeck Community Blood Drive on May 8th
Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives. Blood donors have a unique opportunity to contribute to their community by making a life-saving blood donation. Everyone who registers to donate blood goes through four simple steps during the donation process: registration, donor history screening, donating blood and enjoying snacks. New blood donors who are not familiar with the blood donation process are encouraged to ask questions before, during and after their blood donation. Below are a few tips for ensuring a successful blood donation:
If you are 16 or 17 years old and you've never donated blood with LifeServe Blood Center, be sure to get a signed Parental/Guardian Permission Form.
Get a good night's sleep before your blood donation.
Eat a good meal before donating blood. Do not donate on an empty stomach.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Bring a photo ID or Blood Donor ID card.
