Bring a Blood Buddy


I know we talk about it, and many people think “That’s nice that they’re talking about it”, but giving blood really does save lives. I was talking about the ‘Bring a Buddy Blood Drive’ late last week and got a call from Doug. Doug said he had recently had a procedure and had need a couple units of blood!  He said “I want to thank everyone in advance for giving blood.  It truly does save lives”.

The ‘Bring a Buddy Blood Drive’ is on now at 1st Lutheran Church on 8th Street in Downtown Brainerd. The blood drive runs again today until 6pm and then tomorrow from 9am until 3pm.  If you recruit a friend that hasn’t donated in a while and you both give blood during this drive, the Red Cross will give each of you a 10 dollar gift card to Cub Foods in Brainerd/Baxter. So roll up your sleeve and give the gift of life! You never know when it might be you, instead of Doug, needing a transfusion.
