Rowland Publishing Thanksgiving Blood Drive



A slight breeze drifts through our live oaks, pumpkin spice lattes are in hand and thanksgiving is in our hearts as the holidays are upon us. We hope that you are warm and well this season, but we are conscious that not everyone may share the gift of good health. For the second year, Rowland Publishing, is hosting a Blood Drive on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 12- 4:30 p.m. at 1932 Miccosukee Road. 

A few minutes in the chair during your lunch break can save up to three lives. The very blood coursing through your veins and pumping through your heart can provide stability, health and thanksgiving to those in need. All who can and are willing are welcome to donate. 

To schedule an appointment click here. Plan for a 30-45 minute visit to include registration, a mini wellness check, the donation and light refreshments. A cozy One Blood blanket is yours to take away. 

Prepare for your donation by drinking plenty of water and eating hearty, iron rich meals for a week leading up to your appointment. Before and after drink at least 16 ounces of water. Don’t forget to bring your ID, a list of your medications and an attitude of giving. 

While the turkey and cranberry sauce are a highlight of the season, exercising your power to save lives will resonate long after the table is cleared.
