Red Cross Disaster Relief Blood Drive- Sign up today! Appointments Preferred
Start Date: 10/5/2017Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 10/5/2017End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:

Thursday, October 5
First Floor Function Room, 1-6pm
Walk-in's will be accommodated as is possible. To ensure a slot that fits your schedule, please use the link below to sign up for an appointment.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the recent earthquake to devastate areas of Mexico serve as a reminder of the need for a sufficient blood supply at all times, including times of disaster. Hurricane Irma forced the cancellation of approximately 80 American Red Cross blood drives resulting in more than 2,100 uncollected blood and platelet donations. Through our national inventory system, the Red Cross has the ability to move blood around the country to wherever and whenever it is needed. We encourage eligible donors in parts of the country unaffected by Hurricane Irma to give blood to help ensure a sufficient blood supply.

Sign up today to make sure there is blood on the shelves when it's needed most. Click here or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code SuffolkLaw. Walk-in's will be accommodated, but priority will be given to appointment slots. If you would like to donate and want to ensure you are able, please follow the link to sign up.

Eligible donors with types O, B negative or A negative blood are especially needed (and encouraged to make a Power Red donation). Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. To find out more click here.

Have you traveled outside the US or Europe in the past 12 months? You may not be eligible to donate. To check this and other eligibility questions call the Red Cross Donor and Client Support Center at 1-866-236-3276.
