As the COVID-19 public health crisis continues, our mission to sustain the blood supply is tested in new ways that require our vigilance and flexibility. When viral spread subsides, recovery will require steadfast unity, and equal parts planning and adaptation for months to come. One of the ways you can prepare for a conversation with our representative is to examine your calendar for opportunities to host blood drives over the next year. Some areas least impacted by COVID-19 can help us sustain patients in areas most impacted, so we may call upon your service at times of greatest need as the situation evolves. We are grateful for your commitment and flexibility during this challenging time and looking forward to coming TOGETHER again in service.
Red Cross employees implemented added precautions to ensure blood drives and donation centers are safe for donors and staff. Learn about the COVID-19 safety precautions at Red Cross blood drives.
