Giving Blood is a Slam Dunk
To say thanks to the community members who selflessly donate to ensure a stable blood supply, Memorial Blood Centers is giving away two pairs of Timberwolves tickets each week through the end of March. All donors who present to give during this time will be automatically entered to win. Plus, donors who give before March 15 will be eligible for the grand prize, a night on the town with a $100 VISA gift card and a pair of tickets to see the Timberwolves take on the Los Angeles Lakers on March 30.
You may be eligible to donate blood if you are: in good health, 17 years or older (16 with written parental consent), 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, they encourage donors to make appointments in advance. Visit MBC.ORG to make an appointment at one of the following public blood drives.
Tuesday, March 24, State Farm Columbia Heights, 4634 Central Ave. NE, 12:30-4:30 pm.
Saturday, March 28, Heart Transplant Sisters Blood Drive for Madi and Sydney, 2052 Silver Lake Rd. NW, New Brighton, 11 am-3 pm.
