THANK YOU for making the time to save lives this season!!

We can't wait to welcome you to the 2nd annual "Out for Blood" happening
Tuesday December 14th.

Some tips for you:

*       Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich
foods, such as spinach, red meat, fish, poultry, beans, iron-fortified
cereals and raisins.
*       Get a good night's sleep.
*       Drink an extra 16 oz. of water and fluids before the donation.
*       Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as
hamburgers, fries or ice cream before donating. Tests for infections done on
all donated blood can be affected by fats that appear in your blood for
several hours after eating fatty foods.
*       Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other
forms of ID

               Iron BOOSTERS:  Raisins, Ready to Eat Cereals, Beans,
Spinach, Beef, Shrimp, Tomatoes, Oysters, Broccoli, Rice, Peas, Potatoes,
Watermelon
               Iron BUSTERS:  High Calcium Foods, Caffeinated Beverages,
Chocolate, Some meds like antacids or phosphate salts

Jeff- Can you try to sign up using a different browser?

Is anyone else having trouble attempting to register? When I get to the page where it tells me to confirm the appointment there is no link on the bottom of the page to confirm, it only has "Select a Different Time" or "Edit Information"
