Donating blood products is essential to community health and the need for blood products is constant. As part of our nation’s critical infrastructure, healthy individuals can still donate in areas that have issued shelter in place declarations. The Red Cross follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need.
There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors and blood drive hosts to maintain a sufficient blood supply for weeks to come. In times of crisis, the Red Cross is fortunate to witness the best of humanity as people roll up a sleeve to help those in need.
You must sign up in advance by clicking on the link below or by phone at 1-800-733-2767. In order to ensure safe social distancing and other protocols, no walk in donations will be allowed.
Please note that in order to protect the safety of day care children and staff, the blood drive at Prince of Peace previously scheduled for April 22 will not take place.
