Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood this spring. Every two 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. 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. MBC will collect blood on the following dates and locations:
Monday, May 20, St. Charles Borromeo, 2739 Stinson Blvd NE, Saint Anthony, 2-7 pm.
Monday, May 20, Community Grounds, 560 40th Ave. NE, Columbia Heights, 3:30-7 pm.
Friday, May 31, Cuningham Group, 201 SE Main St., Mpls, 8:30-11:30 am.
