ABC will host a blood drive this summer, for all interested in giving. Sign up today, save a life tomorrow! The blood drive will be held at the ABC office on Friday July 14, and donations will be taken until lunchtime. Please schedule your donation time as far in advance as possible, as there will be a tight schedule with only a handful of slots per hour.

Please make sure to put July 14 on your calendars. The American Red Cross makes an estimation of the amount of blood to be collected and local hospitals have scheduled surgeries around our blood drive. It is very important that we meet our goal to help those in our community. We are counting on you!

When scheduling to donate, you'll notice that there are two types of time slots available: WB (whole blood) and 2RBC (double red blood cell). A whole blood donation time slot will be consistent with any other blood donation you've seen. The double red blood cell donation, or Power Red, is similar to a whole blood donation, except that a special machine is used to allow you to safely donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets to you.

Donation times are on a first come first serve basis, so please select 3 open time slots that would work well for you. You will be sent a confirmation of your scheduled appointment time in advance.
