APPLE VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER TO HOST BLOODMOBILE ON AUGUST 17
August 17, 2017
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.
Please take a few minutes out of your day on August 17 to give the gift of life by donating blood at the Apple Valley Medical Center. An American Red Cross Bloodmobile will be in our parking lot from 10 am to 4 pm that day. The last appointment is at 4:00 pm.
To donate blood, you must be:
At least 17 years old
At least 110 pounds
In good health, with no sign of a cold, sore throat or flu
You also must not have traveled to countries with malaria in the last year. Certain medications may also cause you to be ineligible. To hear the list, call 1-800-236-3276 (option 3).
Most people can donate blood six times a year, yet many donate only once or twice. Please sign up today! Call 1-800-REDCROSS to make an appointment or visit www.redcrossblood.org for more information.
