Are you ready for the August blood drive? I am.
It’s scheduled for Tuesday, August 2 from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the John D. Hooker Building at Rotary Field in Stuart.
We welcome all donors, those who will give for the first time and dedicated donors who have given before, with or without appointments.
The American Red Cross wants to remind you that you can save up to 15 minutes at your upcoming appointment with RapidPass.
RapidPass allows you to complete your pre-reading and health history questions from your own computer. It just takes four simple steps.
On the day of your donation:
1. Visit
2. Read the pre-donation information.
3. Answer the health history questions.
4. Print your pass and/or email it to your mobile device.
Your time is valuable. Make the most of it with RapidPass.
For a successful and pleasant experience, the Red Cross suggests to maintain a healthy iron level in your diet, get a good night sleep, and drink an extra 16 ounces of water before donating.
The August blood drive is sponsored by Sheppard’s Body Shop located just east of Walmart on Hwy 58.
We’ve been collecting blood at the mid to high 30s level in the past couple of months. It’s about time to break down that 40 unit “wall” in August! I’m just saying…
Please consider giving blood. #GiveWithMeaning.
Giving blood could be one of the most satisfying and rewarding acts of your life.
See you at Rotary Field August 2.
Gene Stirewalt,
