BANGOR -Â Chapel Hill Floral, known as Bangorâ€™s neighborhood florist, is teaming up with the American Red Cross Blood Services for the month of September. Long known for their generosity within the community, owners Rick and Barbara Frye are looking to motivate others to get out and donate.
â€śWe want to help out in any way we canâ€¦from donating centerpieces for Disaster Servicesâ€™ Heroâ€™s Breakfast, to giving away roses during holidays, we want to spread the good feeling and encourage others to get involvedâ€ť says Rick Frye. Always a supporter of Disaster Services and Blood Services, the American Red Cross is more than grateful to Chapel Hill.
The month of September is sponsored by Chapel Hill at the donation center, located at 900 B Hammond Street. All month long, presenting donors may enter to win one dozen roses per month for a year, and, get a coupon for a FREE single rose to redeem at Chapel Hill Floral! Not only are presenting donors given the opportunity to potentially save up to three lives with each donation, but also have the chance to brighten a loved oneâ€™s day (for a year!) with roses! Additionally, during the week of Sept. 13, all presenting will receive a single rose and a $10 gift card, all courtesy of Chapel Hill.
To have a successful blood donation in the hot weather, or at any other time of the year, follow these tips:
â€˘ Get a good nightâ€™s sleep before your donation appointment
â€˘ Drink extra water and fluids to replace the volume you will donate (avoid caffeine)
â€˘ Eat a healthy meal before arriving at the blood drive
â€˘ Re-hydrate by drinking plenty of fluids over the next 24-48 hours
