To schedule your appointment:
Did you know? September is National Preparedness Month. Among other preparations, the Red Cross urges blood donors of all types to give blood this September to ensure a readily available supply for patients in need. Like the emergency room of a hospital, the Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient blood needs 24/7. It’s the blood already on the shelves that helps save lives in an emergency.
Don’t forget to save time by using RapidPass to complete your pre-donation ready and health history online before you come to your appointment.
