American Red Cross
SEVERE BLOOD SHORTAGE: Due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations in response to the coronavirus outbreak, the American Red Cross strongly urges healthy individuals to give blood or platelets to help patients in need. If you are healthy, feeling well and eligible to give blood or platelets, please make an appointment to donate as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment by visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
BLOOD DRIVE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: COVID-19 has temporarily disrupted normal life in many communities, but the need for blood hasn’t changed. Volunteers are needed to greet and register blood donors and assist in the canteen area. Blood Drive Volunteers can also choose to assist as a Blood Donor Screener where they will take temperatures of all donors before they enter the Blood Center. Shifts are typically 4-6 hours and volunteers can sign up for shifts online that work with their schedule.
If you reside in a “stay-at-home” or “shelter in place” area, blood collection staff and volunteers are considered essential. Several enhanced blood donations protocols have been implemented in the interest of the safety of the blood supply, recipients, other donors, staff, volunteers and general public health.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact [email protected] or 336-646-4047.
Interested volunteers must apply online at redcross.org/volunteer
