Participate in annual Blood Battle by donating at upcoming clinics

January 22, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

This year’s winter Blood Battle against Michigan State is running now through Feb. 28.  Whether you have never donated blood before or donate every year, your help is needed! Consider donating your blood to be a part of the fight to save lives across the state and country.  

To make an appointment to donate, visit bloodbattle.org and click “Donate” on the homepage or visit the American Red Cross’s website, www.redcrossblood.org and insert the sponsor code “goblue.”

Due to COVID-19, appointments are highly recommended and walk-ins will only be permitted as space permits. All presenting donors will receive a Blood Battle t-shirt and coupon for Washtenaw Dairy while supplies last. Donors will also be entered into a raffle for gift cards to local businesses and other great prizes!

For your convenience, the dates, times, and locations of upcoming drives are listed below. The American Red Cross asks donors to use Rapid Pass, which allows donors to complete their donation quicker by completing some steps before arriving at the blood drive. Visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass for more information. 

Please eat iron-rich foods and drink plenty of water before you donate blood so that you are healthy on the day of your donation. Keep bleeding maize and blue!
