StemExpress welcomes new donors to attend the event and help support life-saving research. New donors will receive a $25 Visa gift card for a small blood draw at the event to determine donor eligibility. Donors have the ability to make $25-$1000 for future donations once eligibility is determined!
StemExpress is also providing snacks, drinks, and free Proud Blood Donor t-shirts, plus contributions from local businesses.
Tips for prepping for a blood donation include:
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water before, during, and after the donation. Try to avoid alcohol or caffeine beverages.
Eat healthy by consuming a diet rich in iron.
Bring a form of identification, State ID or Passport are acceptable.
Wear short sleeves.
Bring a buddy to help curb any nerves associated with donating blood.
Join us on October 23rd, and take part in important research!
