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:

Hydrate
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.

Relax!
Blood donation is a simple and very safe procedure so there is nothing to worry about.
