Beresford, SD- Community Blood Bank’s bloodmobile will be at Sanford Clinic Beresford (600 West Cedar) on Monday, July 10th from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. All who donate will receive a commemorative ALL AMERICAN BLOOD DONOR t-shirt. Community Blood Bank supplies over 550 units of blood each week to people in the region. Among those who benefit from donated blood are trauma and burn victims, cancer patients and persons undergoing surgery. Donating blood is a simple way to save patients lives in the community. Without volunteer blood donors donating blood throughout the summer, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain an adequate supply of blood for community hospitals.
For more information or to make an appointment please call Sanford Clinic Beresford at 763-3700. Walk-ins are also welcome. Donors must be at least 17 years of age (16 years old with signed parent consent), be in good general health and weigh at least 110 pounds. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluid prior to donating. Donating blood on the Community Blood Bank bloodmobile takes just 30-35 minutes.
