Upcoming blood drives in Douglas County area

Donors during February will get a $5 gift card


Give blood or platelets to the American Red Cross in February, and you'll get a $5 gift card.

The American Red Cross says it hopes the freebie will persuade healthy donors to come in during a time of year that typically sees donors stay away because of the weather or illness.

Red Cross blood drives take the following precautions: temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff.

To donate, make an appointment through the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
