Your continued health and safety is our top priority, which is why we are taking the following measures and protocols: donations are by appointment only, staff and donors are required to wear masks and face shields, and adequate social distancing is provided at check-in, waiting areas, and donor beds. 

According to the National Women’s History Museum, “Women have been historic Women have been of historic importance both as donors as well as donation center staff. But it was one woman, Clara Barton, whose vision of volunteerism during crisis and her founding of the American Red Cross paved the way for the truly amazing system of altruistic blood donation in the US.” While you’re giving blood on March 2 or March 3, read more about Clara Barton at the National Women’s History Museum.
