The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum has partnered with the Red Cross again for another blood drive.  This one will be held on January 26, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.   This marks the tenth consecutive year the Reagan Library has hosted blood drives on its campus, and the tenth blood drive its hosted since the pandemic began in 2020.  Since its first blood drive in 2013, the Reagan Library has hosted 30 blood drives and 1,838 donors.  Of these donors, 414 were donating for the first time.  Over the 30 blood drives, the Reagan Library has collected 1,878 units of blood!

But the Red Cross still urgently needs your help and is beginning a National Blood Crisis appeal on January 11, 2022. Red Cross Account Manager Micaela Duarte said, “The situation is dire - the Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade, with less than a one-day supply of critical blood types in recent weeks.  In Ventura County, the area has less than a day’s supply of blood.”

We urge the public to donate blood – if not at the Reagan Library, then somewhere convenient to them.

At the Reagan Library, 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 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
