Blood Drive - October 20th

Save a Life.

Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. will be hosting a Blood Drive on Wednesday, October 20, 2010.  The Blood Drive will be held in the 1515 building in the 5th Floor Auditorium. 

Why Donate Blood?
A continuous supply of blood is essential to meet the needs of patients in Southeastern Louisiana hospitals.  Every 3 seconds, someone needs blood.  One out of every three people will need blood before the age of 72.  Help make sure this lifesaving component is there for you and your loved ones.  A steady stream of donors is always needed. Remember…blood is only available because volunteer blood donors believe that giving blood is very much worth their time.  In addition, the donor gains a good feeling from knowing that his/her donation can save lives.

Remember to bring a picture ID when you donate blood.  Eat a good meal first and drink lots of fluids.  You must be feeling well…no cold, sore throat, or flu symptoms.  Also, know what kind of medicine you are on.  For further information, please see the attached Blood Donor Deferral Guideline Sheet. 

A tenant advisory containing more information will be sent as this date approaches.  We look forward to your excellent support for this blood drive. 

Book & Gift Fair Coming Soon...

Jones Lang LaSalle will be hosting the
Ultimate Event LLC Book & Gift Fair
Come check out the fair on October 7th & 8th from 10 am to 3 pm each day.
