Our next LifeServe Blood Drive at Peace Lutheran Church on Des Moines’ south side will be on June 14, 2016 – which is a Tuesday. The time of the drive will be between the hours of 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm.
Peace Lutheran Church
5615 SW 14th St
Des Moines, IA 50315
Please schedule an appointment by completing the notice that will be in the bulletin or call Chuck Helmuth at 244-9889.
We need as many donors as possible. Please ask your family members and friends/ co-workers to donate.
- Get a good nights sleep before the blood donation.
- Eat a lunch.
- Do not donate on an empty stomach.
- Drink plenty of fluids. When you donate blood your body loses about two cups of fluid. After the blood donation your body replaces the fluid almost immediately by drawing water into your blood from surrounding tissues.
There is always a great need for whole blood donations and remember for every unit of blood donated, three people can be helped.
The bulletin inserts can be completed and placed in the offering basket or turned into the church office.
You may also want to mark your calendars for our future Blood Drives. They are as follows:
September 13, 2016 from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm
December 20, 2016 from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Thanks for your participation and let’s have a great turnout!
Remember walk-ins are welcome.
