November 2021 Red Cross Blood & Platelet Drives
With Thanksgiving and the holidays approaching, the American Red Cross urges donors to continue to make and keep appointments now and in the weeks ahead to help overcome the ongoing emergency blood shortage that has significantly impacted the nation’s blood supply. In fact, the current blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.
To help build momentum for this incredible need, they are offering a giveaway, and other incentives to those who are willing to donate. Those who come to give Nov. 1-12, 2021, will automatically be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii. Plus, those who come to donate Nov. 1-23 will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card by email.
Donors are urged to schedule an appointment now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
Blood drive safety
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including face masks for donors and staff, regardless of vaccination status – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive.
