Wayzata Fire Department to hold blood drive Nov. 14

The Wayzata Fire Department will host a Blood Drive on Monday November 14, 2011  from 2 - 6 pm. at the Fire Station. 

Did you know that one out of every 3 people will need blood?   Blood banks are facing all time lows, you could help, by donating!

To make an appointment go to:  www.mbc.org/searchdrives and enter 3327 as the sponsor code.  Then click on the event date to register.  Please register by November 11th.

What to expect
The collection of a unit, about one pint, of blood takes about 10 minutes (your total invested time may total an hour).  After your donation, you can enjoy some refreshments to replenish your fluids. You are then able to resume daily activities. Eat a full meal at least six hours before donating.  Drink fluids before and after donating and know that you have saved someone’s life.

Bring ID • Eat Before Donating • No Cold or Flu Symptoms for 3 Days

Wondering if you are eligible to donate?
You may be surprised to know that only 40% of the population is eligible to donate (that is why the need is so high).
