The last Ancilla College Blood Drive of the school year will be held Wednesday, APRIL 10th from 10 am to 3 pm in room 231 of the college.
A sign-up sheet for appointments is located at the reception desk in the main hall of the college, but walk-ins are welcome.
The Ancilla Blood Drive is open to students, faculty, staff and the public. The goal is to gather 27 units of blood plasma for use by regional health care institutions.
For this blood drive we will serve baked goods for those giving. If you would like to donate a plate of cookies, brownies, cupcakes or other baked good please contact Dianna Weiss (info below).
Before the Blood Drive:
Be sure to drink plenty of fluids on the day of your donation.
Wear Something Comfortable
Wear clothing with sleeves that can easily be rolled up above the elbow.
Maintain a Healthy Level of Iron in Your Diet Before Donating
If possible, include iron-rich foods in your diet, especially in the week before your donation.
Bring a List of Medications You Are Taking
We will need to know about any prescription and/or over the counter medications that may be in your system.
Bring an ID
Please bring either your donor card, driver’s license or two other forms of identification.
Bring a Friend
Bring along a friend, so that you may both enjoy the benefits of giving blood.
Blood donation is a simple and very safe procedure so there is nothing to worry about.
