American Red Cross Blood Drive: Tomorrow!

Join Global Citizen tomorrow, April 15th from 11:00AM-4:00PM at Girard College!

Volunteer to donate blood. The best blood match for patients often comes from donors of the same race or similar ethnicity. Together we must increase the number of blood donors from all racial and ethnic groups. Sickle cell disease occurs in 1 in 365 births of babies of African descent and 1 in 16,300 Latino births. The American Red Cross and supporters like you can help connect with donors that best meet the needs of patients of all backgrounds.

Note: The American Red Cross is testing all blood product donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Plasma from antibody-positive blood donations may be used to help current coronavirus patients in need. Only those feeling healthy should present to donate and appointments are strongly encouraged. For more information about this, see here.

The blood drive will be at 2101 S College Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19121. All participating donors will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card via email as a thank you. Schedule your donation here!
