Upcoming American Red Cross blood drives

Updated July 27, 2020 - 4:32 pm

The American Red Cross is offering blood donation drives around the Las Vegas Valley through August. The drives will help keep a stable blood supply for patients fighting diseases and prevent another shortage during the pandemic.

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

As a thank-you to donors, all those who give blood from Aug. 1 to Sept. 3 will receive a $5 Amazon gift card via email. In addition, donors who give by Aug. 31 will be entered to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm, redeemable through the 2021 season. A valid email address is required.

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 is also looking for blood drive hosts. Businesses or organizations can sign up to sponsor a drive at redcrossblood.org/hostadrive.
