A pre-Thanksgiving Community Blood Drive will be held in Sheridan the beginning of next week. Lesli Asay with United Blood Services in Billings tells us what the urgent need is this time around.
Donors need to drink plenty of fluids the day before and the day of giving blood, as well as eating a healthy meal before donating. Also, donors need to bring with them a picture ID, and to expect a brief interview with a technician regarding medication. Asay elaborates.
Find the hero in you! Come to the two-day blood drive either Monday, November 22nd from noon until 6 pm or Tuesday, November 23rd from 10 am to 6 pm. The location is the Sheridan Recreation Community Center in the Old Woodland Park School at 5135 Coffeen Avenue.
While walk-ins are welcome, Lesli encourages appointments to be made so they know the correct amount of supplies and staff to send. Please contact UBS at 1-800-365-4450 or log onto http://www.bloodhero.com (sponsor code: sheridan) to schedule an appointment.
*NOTE!!!* All Sheridan donors will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win two tickets on Allegiant Airlines to Denver.
