The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum has partnered with the Red Cross again for another blood drive.  This one will be held on November 8, 20201 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.   This marks the ninth consecutive year the Reagan Library has hosted blood drives on its campus, and the ninth blood drive its hosted since the pandemic began in 2020.  Since its first blood drive in 2013, the Reagan Library has hosted 29 blood drives and 1,764 donors, and has collected 1,805 units of blood!

But the Red Cross still needs your help. According to an October 26, 2021 article from the Red Cross, with Thanksgiving and the holidays approaching, donors are urged to continue to make and keep appointments now and in the weeks ahead to help overcome the ongoing emergency blood <and platelet> shortage that has significantly impacted the nation’s blood supply. In fact, the current blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.

 

To ensure our donor’s safety, the following procedures have been put in place by the Red Cross:

  • All staff, volunteers and donors will have their temperatures taken.  If any temperature is greater than 99.5°F they will not be able to donate or work.
  • Staff and volunteers will wear gloves
  • All staff, volunteers and donors are required to wear a facemask.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at check-in and other areas
  • Blood donors will be required to use hand sanitizer prior to donating
  • Donor beds will be sanitized between every donor
  • Social distancing will be enforced.

 

Due to stricter guidelines, advance appointments are strongly encouraged, however walk-ins will still be accepted.  To schedule your life-saving appointment, visit https://www.redcrossblood.org/ and enter Sponsor Code: ReaganLibrary or contact Jenny Mandel at jennymandel@me.com

 

All presenting donors at the Reagan Library on November 8 will receive a coupon for one free admission into the Reagan Library and Museum.
