WHY: The American Red Cross is facing a critical blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for eligible blood donors of all blood types, especially Type O, to give now and help save lives. New donors and those who haven’t given in a while are especially encouraged to roll up a sleeve and help save lives. Donating blood products is essential to community health and eligible donors are encouraged to donate during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Red Cross follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need.

HOW: Please schedule an appointment to donate, by going online to www.redcrossblood.org. Enter Sponsor Code: ProvidenceHealth

All donors will be automatically entered for a chance to win an authentic WONDER WOMAN 1984 movie prop replica package. Items include The Golden Lasso and a pair of Gauntlets, identical to WONDER WOMAN's from the film.

COVID-19 INFO: For the safety of our donor community and in accordance with CDC guidelines, all donors are required to wear a face covering or mask. Please bring one to your donation. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided to you.
