For the past three Decembers we have collected record units of blood, helping HUNDREDS of patients at the time of year when it matters most. We've consistently exceeded our goal, and our donors are admirably reliable! We are proud hosts. This level of turnout is quite literally unheard of at the American Red Cross, and it's because OF YOU. This year, we're back at it, hosting Blood Drives in Nashville and Detroit — one on Wednesday, December 13th at our Nashville headquarters, one on Wednesday December 20th at our Detroit headquarters — and in doing so, we will SAVE LIVES this Holiday season.

Like our previous blood drives, space is limited, and we won't let you leave a pound lighter with nothing to show for it. Donors will be granted the choice of one gift from beneath the Third Man Family Christmas Trees, and trust us, there are no ugly sweaters, socks, or vacuum cleaners in there... every wrapped mystery gift will delight and excite! If you are eligible to give blood (i.e. 17+, weighing at least 110 lbs, generally healthy, and weren't turned away for another reason in previous drives), please register with the Red Cross and sign up for a time slot now.

If you are trying to sign up, but all slots are already filled, please email with your name, phone number, and which location you would like to donate at. We will put you on our waitlist, and let you know if a time slot becomes available.

Appointments will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis, and we cannot accommodate any walk-ins. Sign up now, and see you in a few weeks!
