- From AdventHeal­th Gordon

AdventHeal­th Gordon is hosting a blood drive organized by Blood Assurance on Wednesday, Dec. 22 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Bloodmobil­e will be parked in front of Resource Building 3 on AdventHeal­th Gordon’s campus.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administra­tion, every two seconds, someone needs a blood transfusio­n. In health care settings in our community and across the country, donated blood is a potentiall­y lifesaving and essential part of caring for patients. One donation can save up to three lives.

To donate, there are some physical health requiremen­ts such as:

Having a normal iron level (a low iron level may mean it’s unsafe for you to donate)

Having a temperatur­e, blood pressure and pulse within a healthy range

Weighing 110 pounds or more Being at least 16 years old To schedule an appointmen­t, visit BloodAssur­ance.org/Gordon or call 800-962-0628. All donors will receive an “Adventure Awaits”

t-shirt, and donors who give twice in 2021 are entered to win a sideby-side.

Be sure to eat a good meal, drink additional water and avoid energy drinks before your appointmen­t.
