City of Dublin to Host a Community Blood Drive on Friday, February 11

Join the City of Dublin in supporting the American Red Cross at a Community Blood Drive to be held on Friday, February 11, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Dublin Civic Center (100 Civic Plaza).  Every two seconds of every day, someone needs blood.  Every donation received by the Red Cross saves up to three lives.  As a thank you for coming to give blood during the month of February, the Red Cross will send donors a $10 Amazon.com gift card via email, thanks to a partnership with Amazon (some terms apply).

To make a donation, visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code, "Dublin Community," or call 1-800-733-2767.  Reservations are required to donate. 

The Red Cross asks that anyone who feels unwell on the day of their appointment should postpone their donation.  For those who are wary of donating due to the coronavirus, the Red Cross has enhanced its sanitization process and follows social distancing rules.  The staff and volunteers sanitize each station between each donation.  Donors must have their temperature checked upon entry, and masks are required.  Any "guests" of donors (e.g., spouse, children) who are not donating are not allowed in the room.

Donors may streamline the donation process by visiting www.redcrossblood.org/RapidPass on the day of the blood drive to complete the pre-donation reading and health history questions.
