Loebig Chiropractic to Host Blood Drive
Loebig Chiropractic & Rehab, in partnership with The American Red Cross, will be hosting another community blood drive in Great Falls at the office of Dr. Glenn Loebig, 754 Walker Rd, Great Falls on Tuesday, Sept. 16 from 1 – 6 p.m.
“The turnout for our last blood drive was so amazing, we decided to host another event to assist with our local blood shortage,” said Loebig.
The American Red Cross mentions that people can donate a pint of blood every 56 days and each donation can help save up to three lives.
Prospective blood donors should bring a photo ID, weigh a minimum of 115 pounds and be at least 17 years of age. A 16-year old may donate blood with written parental consent. Many health conditions and medications do not prevent someone from donating blood, so all interested parties are encouraged to call 703-757-5817 with any questions.
