Share a Pint Blood Drive
American Red Cross Blood Drive – Friday, March 18, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. All Types are Welcome. APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE at https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive.
Ae you a Power Red Donor? Why should you do it? You may already know about the ongoing need for blood and the importance of your blood donations. Whole blood donations contain red blood cells, platelets, plasma and white blood cells. Red blood cells are the most frequently used blood component and are needed by almost every type of patient requiring transfusion. If you meet certain criteria, Power Red allows you to safely donate two units of red cells during one appointment as an automated donation process. It is as safe as whole blood donation. • Power Red is for type O, A negative or B negative donors • You must be in good health and feeling well**
As of March 7 the Red Cross will resume testing all donations for COVID-19 antibodies for a limited time to identify potential units that can be manufactured into convalescent plasma.
