Community Blood Bank Blood Drive in Rock Rapids
January 15 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm
A community blood drive will be held on Wednesday, January 15 from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Central Lyon High School in Rock Rapids. The public is encouraged to donate blood to help with winter blood shortages.
Every three seconds someone needs blood, and the only way to ensure that those needs are met is to rely on volunteer donors to donate blood. The need for local blood donors is immense. The Community Blood Bank supplies over 550 units of blood each week to people in the region. Among those who benefit from donated blood are trauma and burn victims, cancer patients and persons undergoing surgery.
Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood. Please bring an ID with you at the time of donation. For more information log onto www.cbblifeblood.org, call Community Blood Bank at 1-877-877-3070 or call Central Lyon High School at 712-472-2664.
Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our local blood donors.
