Sleeves Up!

Donate blood, get a cookie
0 /25

Volunteers and donation spaces are down due to covid-19 concerns. Giving blood is a great way to contribute to your community and save lives.

The Red Cross app makes donating even easier. Find a convenient donation location and time in the app and sign up in minutes. The last time I donated, it took less than an hour and that includes the 20 minute round-trip drive and 10 minutes to eat cookies and drink orange juice. Fill out the questionnaire in the app ahead of time and skip the line.

If for some reason you can not donate, please pass this on to a friend or volunteer for a donation.

With the start of Black History Month, this is also a great time to celebrate the achievements of Dr. Charles Drew, pioneer in blood transfusions, blood storage and founder of large blood banks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_R._Drew).

What your donors are up to...
