We are excited to announce we are holding a blood drive on Thursday, March 31st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at our office in Lafayette (1925 Dulles Drive). Our Lady of Lourdes Blood Donor Center will be setting up a blood donation bus outside.
It is the season of Lent, which is a time for giving and donating blood is a great way to help those in the community who are in need. Blood is essential for patients undergoing surgery, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses and traumatic injuries. There is always a need for people to donate blood, but few decide to do so.
Make sure to eat before coming to donate blood, as giving blood on an empty stomach could make you feel tired and weak. You also need to bring a picture ID and wear a face covering.
You can use your smartphone to scan the QR code in our social posts about the blood drive to make an appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
