Goodyear, Ariz. (September 10, 2008) –In partnership with United Blood Services, West Valley Hospital will be hosting a blood drive on Monday, September 29, 2008. West Valley Hospital employees and community residents are invited to donate blood from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the bloodmobile stationed in the parking lot.
Each individual who donates blood during the month of September will receive a voucher for a free pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream!
If you enjoy the movies, United Blood Services will send you two free movie passes if you bring a first-time
blood donor to donate as well!
And, to thank you for donating blood, United Blood Services now performs a free “total cholesterol” test on every blood donation. Confidential results will be available at www.UnitedBloodServicesAZ.org
within seven days of each donation.
The blood donation process takes about an hour with the actual donation taking approximately 10 minutes. Donors should eat well and drink plenty of water starting 3-4 days prior to donation. Fortunately, most medications do not exclude a person from donating blood.
