Event Description:
Blood Drive at Pan-O-Prog

Save Lives—on a Stick!
 
Memorial Blood Centers is teaming up with the Minnesota State Fair to give blood donors a chance to win tickets to the Great Minnesota Get-Together! All presenting donors in July are automatically entered into weekly drawings for a pair of tickets. Visit MBC.ORG/FAIR for more information.
 
Plus, all donors from June 25 through July 11 receive a special Fishing for Donors t-shirt!
 
Volunteers are especially needed to step up and give blood during the summer months, when schools are out of session, people are enjoying the weather, and families take vacations.  
 
Donating blood is convenient and safe when you are:
  •  In good health
  • Free of antibiotics for 24 hours, unless taken daily for a skin condition
  • Symptom-free for at least 3 days following a cold or a flu
  • 17 years or older—16 with written parental consent (form available at MBC.ORG)
     
While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments be made in advance. To register for a blood drive, go online to MBC.ORG or contact the sponsoring organization directly. Visit MBC.ORG and search blood drives to find the most up-to-date blood drive list in your community.

Patients in our local hospitals depend on Memorial Blood Centers to be there with the right blood type they need to survive. All types are needed—especially O negative (O-) and O positive (O+). It’s also important to keep your appointment—or to call and reschedule. Your appointments help MBC plan a stable supply of blood for local hospitals.
