SUNY Empire Hosts Blood Drive with the American Red Cross

Event Date(s): 06/01/2021
Event Time(s): 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Event Description: Please call extension 2265 or send an email to Tiffany.Williams@esc.edu to schedule an appointment. The entire process will take about an hour, unless you are a double-red-cell donor, which will take approximately 30 minutes longer. At our last drive in January, the Red Cross collected 30 units, potentially helping 90 patients. The Red Cross hopes to collect 25 regular donations and 10 double-red-cell donations at this drive.
Comments: ***SAFETY PROTOCOLS***


The Red Cross has established donation safety protocols to keep you safe during the pandemic:
All staff and donors are required to wear a face covering or mask
Standard health assessments will be administered prior to all blood drives
Use of enhanced disinfecting of surfaces and equipment
Hand sanitizer will be provided for use before entering and throughout the donation appointment
Temperature checks will be conducted before donors enter the blood drive or donation center
Social distancing practices will be enforced (includes donor beds, check-in, waiting, and refreshment areas)

[redcrossblood.org/RapidPass]
[redcrossblood.org/RapidPass]Rapid Pass
RapidPass will be available for this drive. It allows you to start the blood donation process from the comfort of your home or office and save time at the donation site. The process is simple.

***Please note that RapidPass cannot be completed prior to the date of the drive; you must complete the steps to redeem your pass on the day you donate.***

Benefits of Donating:

It feels great to donate!
You get free juice and cookies.
Most people have blood to spare...yet, there is still not enough to go around.
You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed. Most people think they'll never need blood, but many do.
You will be someone's hero. In fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.

Please help us reach our goal!
