Save a Life: Give Blood

Giving blood is a way of helping to minister to all the world! FUMC Gilbert sponsors three Blood Drives each year. There is a hero inside each of us, ready to make a difference when others need our help.

When you donate blood you are a hero, and you can get that feeling over and over again throughout the year. Think about how the people who needed those donations feel about you. You are, without a doubt, a hero to them.


You must be at least 16 to donate blood. Parental permission is required for donors who are 16 – 17 years old. Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. A vital signs and health history screening exam will be given before you donate.

If you meet all these criteria, we welcome your donation.
