Because of You, Life Doesn’t Stop

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This could be a little girl in the ICU or a mother with Stage 3 leukemia. If you’re worried about needles, don’t be—most blood donors compare the experience to a mild, split-second pinch! The entire process is very safe and very fast, and you will feel amazing knowing you potentially saved up to three people.

COVID-19 vaccinated? Great! You are ABSOLUTELY allowed to give blood or platelets if you meet all general blood donation eligibility criteria.

Our Goal

38 appointments, 27 successful donors, and 30 lifesaving units of blood! Will you help?

We've had a few cancellations, so if you can donate, please sign up today!

While the blood donation slots may be full, we do need three (3) volunteers to make this a success. You will check in blood donors, provide info about the Redwood Heights Association, and hand out goodie bags to the donors. Easy 1 1/2 hour shifts. Can you help?
