Arkansas Blood Institute Opt-Out

After careful consideration, the American Red Cross Greater Ozarks-Arkansas Blood Region has made the decision to discontinue its blood donation collections in Central Arkansas by the end of this calendar year. Our Red Cross donation sites in Little Rock, North Little Rock and Russellville will close December 31, 2017.

We are grateful for your loyal support of the Red Cross blood program. Beginning January 1, 2018, Arkansas Blood Institute, with the support of the Red Cross, will be working with local Central Arkansas blood and platelet donors, as well as blood drive sponsors to ensure a sufficient blood supply for your area hospitals.

As part of this transition – and in an effort to minimize any chance of interruption to local blood supplies – the Red Cross would like to provide Arkansas Blood Institute with information necessary to contact you about continuing to donate blood. The information the Red Cross will supply to Arkansas Blood Institute will be limited to your name, address, and telephone number. The Red Cross will not provide your social security number or any other information.

If you do not want the Red Cross to provide your name, address or telephone number to Arkansas Blood Institute please complete the form below before Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.
