Between May and September the Red Cross traditionally sees a big drop in the blood supply as donors leave for vacation. Please donate blood at one of the upcoming blood drives and bring a co-worker or friend to give with you. Walk-ins are welcome. Participate in donating blood or platelets from June 1 to June 30 and enter a drawing for one of two $750 gas cards
The minimum age is 17 and there’s no upper age limit. You must have a photo I.D. or a Red Cross donor card to donate. If you have questions about eligibility, please call toll free at 1-866-562-7156 to speak with a donor counselor.
