The American Red Cross and the National Football League are teaming up this January, during National Blood Donor Month, to urge individuals – especially those who have recovered from COVID-19 – to give blood and to help tackle the national convalescent plasma shortage.
Those who come to donate blood or platelets this January will be entered to win two tickets to next year’s Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles.
Individuals can schedule an appointment to give blood with the American Red Cross by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or activating the Blood Scheduling Skill for Amazon Alexa.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
Jan. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Missouri Department of Social Services, 505 N. Ridgeview Dr., Suite A in Warrensburg.
