Motlow State Community College
Motlow State Smyrna campus hosts Red Cross Blood Drive June 29
LYNCHBURG, TN (June 17, 2016) — Motlow State Community College Smyrna campus will host a Red Cross blood drive on Wednesday, June 29, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Red Cross Bus that will be located on the Smyrna campus at 5002 Motlow State Blvd.
Tragedies such as the one in Orlando underscore the need for blood to already be on the shelves in the event of such an emergency in order to help save lives. That is why it is important that eligible individuals schedule an appointment to give blood and platelets in the weeks and months ahead.
Donors may actually start the donation process before leaving home or work by completing an online pre-donation and health history questionnaire at their convenience on the day of the donation. This newly offered process, known as Rapid Pass, can save up to 15 minutes at the appointment. Donors can learn more at redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.
Tips for a successful donation include: drink plenty of water, bring your donor card or two forms of identification, and wear sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
