9:30 AM - 3:00 PM American Red Cross Blood Drive, Gym
Our goal is to meet the "Pump It Up" challenge and collect at least 224 units of blood. We can’t do it without our donors showing up and giving blood, which is where you come in! (Just remember that Power Red donations count as 2 units).
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with YOUR generous donation.
Use the Blood Donor App on your phone and enter sponsor code “ACM” to schedule your appointment. (The app has a cool new feature!!! When you schedule your donation on the app and then donate blood, you'll be able to track your blood donation as it makes its way to a hospital. In order for this feature to work on the app, you have to schedule your donation through the app.)
You can now save time at your donation by using RapidPass to complete your pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of your donation, from a home or work computer prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPassand
follow the instructions.
• If you have the most recent version of the Red Cross Blood Donor App, you can use the donor card in the app as your official form of identification at your appointment. Download the app by texting “BLOODAPP” to 90999 or searching “American Red Cross” in app stores.
