American Red Cross sets blood drives around Las Vegas Valley

Updated May 14, 2020 - 2:55 pm

The American Red Cross is asking for blood donors to ensure a stable blood supply during the pandemic. To assist the nonprofit, a variety of locations around the Las Vegas Valley will be hosting blood drives through May 31.

Donors need to make an appointment before arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask. Red Cross blood drive and donation centers will follow the highest standards of safety and infection control and include social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff.

All donors who give blood Friday through May 31 will receive a Red Cross “We’re all in this together” T-shirt by mail, while supplies last. Donors must have a valid email address on file to claim the T-shirt.

Individuals interested in donating can make an appointment at redcrossblood.org, by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App or by calling 800-733-2767.

The Red Cross also needs blood drive hosts. To sponsor a drive, visit redcrossblood.org/hostadrive.
