Blood Drive with the American Red Cross
GIVE BLOOD, SAVE LIVES
Join us Thursday, March 4, for the Richmond Raceway Blood Drive with the American Red Cross from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The blood drive to support the greater Richmond region will be hosted in the Commonwealth Building at the Richmond Raceway Complex.
March is Red Cross Month, by participating you can be part of the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross by donating blood, platelets or plasma.
If you are interested in donating, you will need to sign up online at redcrossblood.org. Use the code "race" in the Find a Blood Drive field on the homepage.
Richmond blood drive participants should enter the facility through the Main Gate and follow directions to the Commonwealth building. To save up to 15 minutes at the blood drive, donors are encouraged to complete a RapidPass, a pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire, upon arrival. To complete a RapidPass, donors can follow the instructions at redcross.org/rapidpass or use the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
To ensure the safety of blood donors, protocols have been updated to keep all guests healthy while donating blood. The American Red Cross is also testing every unit for COVID-19 antibodies. To learn more about COVID-19 blood donation safety protocols, click here.
