DONATING BLOOD: Donors are able to give every 60 days, so if you were able to donate at the last drive please come again. Donors must be healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years old or 16 with written consent. Donors should be hydrated and have had a good meal an hour prior to the donation time. Walk-ins donations are welcome!
WRITE TO OUR TROOPS: Both donors and non-donors are encouraged to share your thoughts and prayers with our service members overseas. Beside the Blood Mobile will be a tent, table and chairs set up with materials provided for writing. Bring paper, markers and more for crafting letters to our troops. We have adopted a group of soldiers!
HELP WITH ITEMS FOR CARE PACKAGES: If you wish to donate items for troop care packages, the following are examples always greatly appreciated by our service members: jerky, trail mixes, protein bars, flavored coffee, flavored beverage mixes (Mio, etc.), and anything good for snacking and energy.
