Boone County Blood Drives

The American Red Cross initiative aims to increase blood availability for patients with sickle cell disease.  Blood transfusions for donors who are Black may provide best outcomes for patients

To help tackle the need for blood in September – Sickle Cell Awareness Month − all donors who come to give with the Red Cross Sept. 13-30 will receive a limited-edition football-themed T-shirt, while supplies last.

As Fall Approaches, the American Red Cross urges eligible donors to help end the ongoing critical need for blood and kick off the season with a blood donation.  The Red Cross needs donors of all blood types to give now and help ensure lifesaving transfusions are on the sidelines for those who rely on them.

Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions-including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance.  Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive.

If you are feeling well, please make an appointment to give by using the Blood Donor App, visiting, calling 1-800-Red Cross ( 1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo Device.

Don’t miss your next chance to give!
