(St. Petersburg, FL. December 8, 2015) It is better to give than to receive and at no time of the year do we feel this more strongly than the holidays. Please brighten the lives of patients and their families this holiday season by giving blood during our “12 Days of Giving” celebration. Give the perfect gift, the ‘Gift of Life’ at any OneBlood Donor Center or on a Big Red Bus from Sunday, December 20 through Thursday, December 31, 2015 and receive a special donor thank you gift!
For OneBlood Donor Center & Big Red Bus Locations & Hours Visit:
Appointments Honored, Walk-ins Welcome
All donors also receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and a cholesterol screening, plus a special gift!
Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org.
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused into a patient within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 200 hospital partners and their patients throughout most of Florida, parts of Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. The OneBlood name is a constant reminder of the collective power we share to save another person’s life.
