Blood supplies of all types remain extremely low. Staffing at a drive is determined by appointments, which are encouraged. Walk-in donors will be accommodated if time permits. 

Make an appointment at RedCrossBlood.org, call 800-733-2767, or download the Red Cross Donor App which will provide you with a current donor card on your phone. Save time at the drive by completing a Rapid Pass which includes pre-donation reading and the health questionnaire the day of the drive.

Go to RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or your donor app. Every two seconds someone needs blood. One unit of blood can help as many as three people. Give the gift of life!
