Give Blood.

Donating blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others. Central Lutheran hosts blood drives for the American Red Cross twice each year in the Family Life Center.

To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-733-2767.  Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome.

To get ready for your donation:

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 weeks 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.
