Join Avera McKennan Fitness Center, KELO Radio, DQ (Minnesota Ave. location) and Community Blood Bank for the “Give from the Heart” Valentine’s blood drive event.
“This time of year is difficult to gain blood donations, with the cold and flu season at it peak donations fall off, states Rita Nelson, Community Blood Bank. “This special event serve as an encouragement and reminder of the consistent need for blood in our community each day. Our needs are great but by the generosity of our community donors, we are able to continue to meet the patients needs.”
The blood donations will be held on Friday, Feb. 10 from 6:30 am to 11:00 am at the Avera Fitness Center (3400 Southeastern). All who donate will receive a three day visitor pass to the Avera McKennan Fitness Center, t-shirt, DQ pint of ice cream and carnation.
Impact lives in February and give that special Valentine’s gift to a patients in need.
