It’s that time again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Shepherd 3rd Annual Red Cross Blood DriveRed Cross Blood Drive

We have a date!

September 3rd 10am – 2:30pm

Once again – the Red Cross will bring the donation bus. We have a new goal of 28 units – I know we can make that goal with plenty to spare!

Last year several teens came to donate but sadly , were turned away because they lacked proper ID.  Everyone who donates must have a picture ID!!!

Last year 7 people were declined due to low iron counts. This is also an easy fix – the two days prior to donating make sure you stay well hydrated – eat plenty of protein AND – this is VERY important: during the in-take, when you have your blood pressure and iron checked: MAKE SURE TO KEEP YOUR HANDS WARM AND THE BLOOD CIRCULATING!!  RUB, RUB, and RUB your hands and fingers together before the finger stick! This can raise your reading by 5 or more points!

Paper sign up sheets for donors are now available in the fellowship hall.
