The Red Cross requires that all participants wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Giving blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the life of others. And with the ongoing pandemic, the Red Cross needs the help of blood donors to meet the needs of patient care. Appointments must be scheduled in advance via the Red Cross website. There are 28 appointments available. Photo ID is required. 16-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds and provide signed parental permission; 17-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds; 18+-year-olds must weigh at least 110 pounds.
