Red Cross August Blood Drives

August 5 @ 10:00 am - August 30 @ 2:30 pm

RED CROSS AUGUST BLOOD DRIVES

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. A car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood.  This lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation, and a single donation can save up to 3 lives.

“Volunteer donors are the unsung heroes for patients in need of lifesaving blood transfusions,” said Shannon Revels, Senior Account Manager for the American Red Cross Donor Recruitment Department. “If you are healthy and feeling well, please schedule an appointment to give now. You never know when you or a loved one will be the one in need. I urge anyone who can donate to take an hour out of their day and give back.”

The actual blood donation takes about 10 – 12 minutes.  The entire process from arrival to departure is about one hour.  Healthy donors may donate every 56 days.  

Appointments can be made at redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
