OneBlood Drive at The Market Shops
Maple Street Biscuit Company will host the OneBlood Drive on Saturday, October 5th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The OneBlood Big Red Bus® will be parked in The Market Shops parking lot, adjacent to Highway 98. Every donor who donates blood will receive a free signature biscuit and movie ticket.
All donors will receive a free a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening.
Following the success of the last few drives, which saw an impressive number of donors, The Market Shops plans to continue these on a quarterly basis.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood. Generally healthy people ages 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Photo ID is required. All donors receive a wellness checkup of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including cholesterol screening.
One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Blood that is donated on October 5 will likely be transfused within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant. Many potential blood donors believe that they cannot donate blood due to medical or other reasons. If you are curious if you are a candidate for donation or to learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type, visit oneblood.org.
Located at the entrance of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, The Market Shops is an upscale, neighborhood-style shopping, dining and entertainment center.
