THANK YOU to all who donated blood and helped at the March blood drive! The Red Cross desperately needs pints of blood! If you can donate for the next blood drive on Monday, June 12, at Our Shepherd Lutheran Church at 2225 East 14 Mile Road in Birmingham, please click here to register, call Pat Dobosenski at 248.422.4729, or scan this qr code: 

If you will be a blood donor (thank you!) the Red Cross suggest that, beforehand, you:

  • Drink water: A good portion of the blood donated is made up of water, so be sure to drink water before and after donating. Most locations advise drinking about 16 ounces of water beforehand. This will help reduce fatigue and dizziness after donating by keeping your body hydrated and replenished.
  • Eat iron-rich foods: What is the best thing to eat before giving blood? Iron-rich foods such as chicken, red meat, fish, spinach, broccoli, beans, iron-certified cereals, and lentils are essential for helping your body replace the red blood cells you lose during donation.
If you would like to sign up to be considered as a bone marrow donor and are between the ages of 18 - 44, please visit www.bethematch.
