Please call before attending any community events. It is likely that they will be postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus. You can find CDC coronavirus information at cdc.gov/coronavirus; AARP has additional resources at aarp.org/coronavirus.

When you donate blood, you are giving the gift of life to others. Please consider giving at this upcoming blood drive hosted by Riverside. Donors of all types are welcome, as are Power Red donors.

Blood donation requirements include a minimum weight of 110 pounds and minimum age of 17. A 16-year-old may donate blood with written parental consent. There is no upper age limit for donating blood.

Many health conditions and medications do NOT prevent someone from donating blood. You CAN give blood even if you are taking insulin or blood pressure, thyroid, and cholesterol medications, aspirin, antidepressants or hormone replacement medications.

We encourage donors to eat a meal and drink plenty of water before coming to give blood. You don't need an appointment but having one will speed the process. Visit www.redcrossblood.org to make an appointment.
