Can I Donate Blood?

Get all your questions answered by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or visiting

Power Red

Maximize your donation and help more patients with a Power Red Donation. Red blood cells are the most commonly transfused blood component, and therefore the most needed.  Since they carry oxygen throughout the body, they are essential to hospital patients. The requirements for Power Red Donations are different than whole blood. Visit for details or download the Power Red Donation Guide.

Rapid Pass

Short on time but still want to participate?  Through the use of technology, RapidPass®, now offers donors a way to complete their pre-reading and health history questions online to help reduce the time they spend at blood drives by up to 15 minutes. RapidPass® is making drives more efficient and offering donors more ways to get their pass.  RapidPass® can only be used the day of your donation and can be accessed online at or through the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, available in your app store or by texting BLOODAPP to 90999. Download the RapidPass® Guide for more information.

Story of Hope

A blood donation can forever change the lives of patients in need.  Read how siblings Josi and Justin Sharp, born with congenital heart defects, were saved through a gift of blood in this Story of Hope.
