MONTHLY BLOOD DRIVE

March 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

We have the privilege of hosting a recurring blood drive on the second Monday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Appointments and masks are MANDATORY to comply with physical distancing regulations; health and safety of donors and blood staff.
It is perfectly safe to donate during this time, and your donations will be much appreciated to the people who need them most.
Over 80% of UCHealth blood products are the direct result of community-hosted blood drives. UCHealth Garth Englund Blood Center is fortunate for the many people, businesses, and organizations in the northern Colorado community that commit to hosting blood drives on-site. Donations made during our blood drives stay within the UCHealth system. They support patient needs at Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Greeley Hospital, and Longs Peak Hospital.
Several things can be done before donating, and in between donating, to keep you feeling your best. Follow these simple suggestions, for big results:
– Rest. Be sure to get a good night’s sleep prior to donating, and try to schedule before or several hours after exercising.
– Hydrate. Start hydrating at least 24 hours prior to your donation appointment. Choose water, juice, or sports drinks to help make your veins easier to locate, and to replenish fluid volume lost during your donation. Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeine (coffee, soda, energy drinks) for 24 hours before your donation.
– Eat well. Eat a well-balanced meal within four hours leading up to your donation appointment. Avoid fatty foods as they may affect the blood you donate. Increase your diet in iron-rich foods between donations to maintain your proper iron levels.
