Donors can share their hearts this winter when they give blood with the American Red Cross. It takes a lot of generous people to ensure blood is on hospital shelves when patients need it. First time donors don’t need to know your blood type to give. You will find out what your blood type is 2-3 weeks after your blood donation. In addition to finding out your blood type:


You get a mini-physical when you come to give.

  • The Red Cross will check your pulse, blood pressure and hemoglobin levels. All of these details are tracked in the Blood Donor App too, so you can monitor your results over time.
  • The American Red Cross routinely checks your hemoglobin before each blood and platelet donation. Hemoglobin is a protein in your body that contains iron and carries oxygen to the tissues in your body. A screening test measures the amount of hemoglobin from a single drop of blood obtained from a finger stick. If your hemoglobin is too low, we will ask that you wait to donate. Iron is an essential mineral that is a part of hemoglobin which helps maintain your strength and energy. Your body needs iron to make new blood cells, replacing the ones lost through blood donations.

General Guidelines for Blood Donation:

  • Be in good general heath and feeling well.
  • Weight at least 110 lbs.
  • Have not donated blood in the last 56 days.

All presenting donors will get a $20 Amazon GC via email. Each blood donation can help save patients in need—the lives of newborn babies and their mothers, the lives of those battling cancer, or those suffering unexpected traumas. Our service is not only to patients in need but to the families who love them. CLICK HERE to schedule an appointment.  Sign up with a friend and save lives together.
