The Market Shops will host the OneBlood Drive on Friday, May 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Following the success of the 2018 drives, which saw an impressive number of donors, The Market Shops plans to continue the drives on a quarterly basis. The OneBlood Big Red Bus® will be parked in The Market Shops parking lot, adjacent to Highway 98.
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.
Donors will also receive a OneBlood t-shirt, a free mini iced cinnamon biscuit from Maple Street Biscuit Company, a kid’s scoop of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s, and 10 percent off a purchase at Clean Juice in The Market Shops.
