FOUR EASY STEPS
There are four easy steps to becoming a red-blooded hero and give the gift of life:
Sign in with our friendly receptionist and complete a brief health history questionnaire
(approx. 15 minutes)
We will give you a "mini-physical" to review your medical history, check your blood
pressure, pulse rate, body temperature and iron levels (approx. 15 minutes)
3. BLOOD DONATION
Your life-giving blood is drawn by a skilled medical professional using new, sterile,
and disposable materials (approx. 15 minutes)
4. HEALTHY SNACKS AND JUICE FOR ALL!
You're already done! And, in addition to the wonderful feeling of satisfaction you
have from knowing that your blood will help save someone's life, you'll enjoy healthy
snacks and drinks while relaxing in our canteen area.
What to Bring With You
When donating blood, please be sure to bring a current photo ID, preferably a valid
Driver License. If you are a high school donor or don't have one of these, another
form of ID with your photo and proof of age on it is necessary.
What to Eat Before Donating Blood
Before making a life-giving blood donation, you should eat at your regular mealtimes
and drink plenty of liquids. You might also increase your consumption of "iron rich"
foods a few days before making a blood donation because only donors with good iron
levels are able to give the gift of life.

HOW WILL YOU FEEL AFTER DONATING BLOOD?
In a word, great! After all, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have
helped to save someone's life simply by donating blood.
