The Town of Palm Beach is hosting a Blood Drive on Thursday, October 17, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Big Red Bus will be located in front of the Police Station at 345 South County Road. All donors will receive a movie ticket and a wellness checkup.
Preparation is key before donating blood. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep, drink plenty of water and eat iron-rich foods which include red meat, poultry, beans, leafy greens and iron-fortified cereals prior to your donation.
Blood donations are a form of volunteering, so there is no fee to contribute. The only item you will need to bring is your driver’s license or an identification card. After you have donated, it is important to eat and drink so your body can start producing new blood cells efficiently.
