FOUR EASY STEPS

There are four easy steps to becoming a red-blooded hero and give the gift of life:

1. REGISTRATION

Sign in with our friendly receptionist and complete a brief health history questionnaire (approx. 15 minutes)

2. MINI-PHYSICAL

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.

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.
