Join the SaddleBrooke Ranch Red Cross Blood Drive and help save lives!
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. That’s why SaddleBrooke Ranch is on a mission to help save lives by hosting a blood drive on Sept. 24, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Ranch House, Sol Ballroom, 31143 S. Amenity Dr.
The community is invited to take part in this special event and donate blood for hospital patients in our neighborhoods and across the nation. The need for blood is constant, but only 3% of the U.S. population donates. By rolling up a sleeve, donors can play a critical role in the treatment of accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer, or sickle cell disease.
To make an appointment or to learn more, download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org, or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Completion of a RapidPass® online health history questionnaire found at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass is encouraged to help speed up the donation process. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.
Can you go Power Red? Power Red is similar to whole blood donation except a special machine is used to allow you to safely donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets to you. Maximize your impact and schedule a Power Red donation today!
