Start your pre-donation reading

The Red Cross works to ensure that the blood and platelet donation process is as safe as possible for donors and patients in need. We need to start by confirming some information. 

Are you 19 years of age or older?

Please enter the ZIP Code where you will be donating. If you're uncertain, please check here.

Pre-Donation Reading

Please take a few minutes to review the following materials. Once you've reviewed them, check the boxes to confirm your understanding. If you have any questions, our staff are happy to help when you arrive for your donation or you can call 1-800-RED CROSS.


You must answer the questions honestly and without assistance or influence from anyone else.

To ensure the safety of blood donation for both donors and recipients, all volunteer blood donors must be evaluated to determine their eligiblity to give blood. The final determination will be made on the day of your donation at the blood drive or blood donation center.

If you choose to print your pass, a laser printer is recommended. If you plan to pull up the pass on your mobile device, please ensure you have received and can open it on that device before coming to the drive.
