What to Expect

Thank you for deciding to donate blood!

Here are a few things to know:

  • Bring your ID! We are required to verify the identity of our donors prior to allowing them to donate.
  • Eat before you come! It is absolutely essential that you eat something within 2 hours before arriving for your blood donation.
  • The average adult has about 10 to 12 pints of blood in his/her body. Approximately 1 pint is given during a donation.
  • Actual blood donation typically takes less than 10 to 12 minutes—the entire process, from arrival to completion takes about 1 hour.
