The American Red Cross has issued an emergency appeal for blood donations due to an unprecedented blood shortage. About 300 blood drives across 27 states have been forced to cancel due to winter weather, further depleting an already low winter supply. To help meet the need, Goodwin will host a local blood drive on Thursday, February 9, 8:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., in the Community Room. Goodwin’s target goal is 48 units.
To make an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or go to redcrossblood.org, sponsor code: Goodwin. Donors can also save time by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, the day of their donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started, visit www.redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.
As a thank you, donors at the 2/9 blood drive will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card claim code! All codes will be emailed to donors approximately 14 days after their donation. Donors MUST have a valid email address in order to receive their reward. No physical gift cards will be mailed.
