Posted in Harmony Health & Wellness

Harmony will be hosting a bloodmobile at the Harmony Community Center from 1-6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23, 2014. Please note that this drive ends an hour earlier than normal. All donors will be required to provide identification before donating, so please remember your donor card or driver’s license.



Typically, all healthy men and women who are at least 16 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate blood. Donors who are 16 must have the written permission of a parent or guardian. Parental consent forms will be available on the day of the blood drive.

There is no upper age limit, and the time commitment is minimal.

While walk-ins are more than welcome, donors are highly encouraged to make appointments. To make an appointment, please call Marilyn Bratager at 507-937-3406.
