Blood Drive

Join your neighbors to help those in need by donating blood at the Redwood Heights Association Blood Drive at the Redwood Heights Recreation Center on Saturday, January 14, 2023, from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

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.
