Memorial Blood Centers is calling all life-savers

 

March 28, 2019

Local blood bank Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood. Every 2 seconds, someone needs blood – from heart transplant and cancer patients to accident victims and premature babies. The need for blood is constant, but the supply is not. Only volunteer blood donors can make a life-saving difference to someone in need. And, nearly 100% of the blood used by patients in Northland hospitals is donated by Northland blood donors with Memorial Blood Centers.

You may be eligible to donate blood if you are:

• In good health

• 17 years or older-16 with written Parental Consent (PDF)

• Free of antibiotics for 24 hours, unless taken for preventative reasons

• Symptom-free for at least 72 hours following a cold or flu

While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. Visit MBC.ORG to find your nearest community blood drive or donor center.
