Lane Blood Center has made a commitment to saving lives and doing wonderful things in the community. Earth Day is April 22 but Lane Blood Center is celebrating Earth Day 2014 for the entire month of April!
In honor of each donation of blood, Lane Blood Center will purchase a tree from Trees For The Future; a nonprofit organization that helps to plant trees in developing countries, and plant a tree in your honor. Up to two thousand trees will be purchased.
Not only will your donation help to save lives but will continue to give for many years. A pint of blood can save up to three lives. That is pretty amazing.
Giving blood only takes about 45 minutes and its pretty easy. To donate blood, you should be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, be 16 or older and have had a good protein rich meal 4 hours prior to donation. Being well hydrated is also recommended.
Lane Blood Center is located at 2211 Willamette Eugene, Oregon and is open 10 am – 6 pm Monday – Wednesday, 8 am – 3:30 pm Thursday – Friday and 8 am – 12 pm Saturday. Please stop by or call 541-484-9111 to make an appointment.
