How to Donate Blood

Simply call the M-P Extension Office to make an appointment or for more information.  All blood types needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.  A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.  Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.  High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

About the American Red Cross

Governed by volunteers and supported by giving individuals and communities, the American Red Cross is the single largest supplier of blood products to hospitals throughout the United States.  While local hospital needs are always met first, the Red Cross also helps to ensure no patient goes without blood no matter where or when they need it.  In addition to providing nearly half of the nation’s blood supply, the Red Cross provides relief to victims of disaster, trains millions in life saving skills, serves as a communication link between U.S. military members and their families, and assists victims of international disasters or conflicts.
