American Red Cross Blood Drives

American Red Cross Blood Drives

The American Red Cross Missing Type campaign continues to generate awareness of the need for new donors to help fill the gaps with much needed A’s, B’s and O’s, which make up the main blood types. Many new and lapsed donors have been inspired to make an appointment to give. However, there continues to be a critical need for donors of all types to give now. 

How to donate blood:

Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
