OneBlood will be holding a Blood Drive in Miramar Beach in October, hosted by Maple Street Biscuit Company on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019 . The OneBlood Big Red Bus® will be parked in The Market Shops parking lot, adjacent to Highway 98, that day.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood. Generally healthy people ages 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Photo ID is required. All donors receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including cholesterol screening.
Those who donate blood on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 8 a.m.- 1 p.m. will receive a free mini iced cinnamon biscuit from Maple Street Biscuit Company as well as a movie ticket that can be used at the AMC Theaters located in Destin Commons or at the New Vision Theaters Boulevard 10 located in Grand Boulevard Town Center.
One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated in October will likely be transfused within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant. Many potential blood donors believe that they cannot donate blood due to medical or other reasons.
