Give Blood and be Entered to Win a Vacation

November 21, 2018 (St. Paul, MN) – Help save lives and you could also be packing your bags! All Memorial Blood Centers donors in December are entered to win a vacation. Choose between a Key West beach stay, New Orleans jazz & dining, San Diego yacht sailing, or Lake Tahoe ski getaway. Visit MBC.ORG/TRAVEL for details.

 

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+).

 

Donating blood is convenient and safe when you are healthy, well and:

    • In good health
    • Free of antibiotics for 24 hours, unless taken daily for 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 to be made in advance. To register for a blood drive, schedule online or contact the sponsoring organization directly.
