Our last blood drive of 2023 will be held on Nov. 18 at MountainView Ballroom from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Now that everyone has returned for the winter, we are hoping to have a record final drive. The community has put forth a great effort this year to collect as much blood as we can. Everyone should be proud. Also take note of the upcoming drives for 2024 listed below.
As a blood donor, you do something extraordinary with each donation. You give families hope. You give patients courage. And you give those who need it most, life. Donors like you make all the difference. That is why your donation for this drive is more important than ever. The need for blood is constant, and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds, and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
To schedule your appointment, please go to redcrossblood.org or call 800-733-2767. Also, you can start the donation process before leaving home by completing the RapidPass online pre-donation and health history questionnaire from your mobile device or Blood Donor app on the day of your appointment. You can save up to 15 minutes. Learn more at redcrossblood.org/RapidPass. We hope to see you all.
Blood drives for 2024: Jan. 13, March 23, May 18, July 20, Sept. 14, and Nov. 9
