Reasons to donate blood:
It's easy and convenient. It only takes about forty minutes and you can make the donation right here at church.
At this drive, you will receive a coupon for $2.50 off the purchase of a 48 oz. container of Turkey Hill All Natural Ice Cream.
You will be someone's hero. You may give a newborn, a child, a mother or a father, a brother, or a sister another chance at life. In fact, you may help save up to three lives with just one donation.
You will be helping to ensure that blood is there when you or someone close to you may need it. Most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.
You will walk a little taller afterwards. You will feel good about yourself.
It's the right thing to do.
You will get free snacks and drinks.
You will weigh less; one pint less when you leave than when you came in.
Nobody can ask you to do any heavy lifting as long as you have the bandage on. You can wear it for as long as you like. It's your badge of honor.
