Event description

Description

Thank you! You donated thousands of units of blood and platelets to help patients in need here and in areas affected by recent hurricanes.

HOW CAN YOU HELP NOW?

The need now is for you to schedule a platelet donation.

Hospitals are requesting more support as patients continue to rebuild their lives.

We encourage all donors to consider making an appointment at any of our donor rooms.

Before You Give:

  1. EAT - Consume an iron-rich meal before you donate. For meal tips, click here.
  2. HYDRATE - Drinking 8-10 glasses of fluid 1-2 days before you give will help make veins more visible, help you feel more energized after donation and more.
  3. Rest - Get a good night's sleep before you donate.

Here are more tips to prepare you for the donating.

Here is more information if you suffer from low iron.
