The office of St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green will host its semiannual community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, August 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Room 208 of St. Louis City Hall.
For more information or to schedule an appointment to donate, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.
All donors are welcome at the blood drive. With no known end date to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Red Cross urgently needs the help of blood and platelet donors to meet the needs of patient care.
For a limited time, the Red Cross is testing all donated blood, platelets and plasma for COVID-19 antibodies. Results of the test will be available online about one week after donation. The antibody test indicates if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether symptoms were present—it is not a substitute for a diagnostic test.
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control. Red Cross essential services have been approved by local and federal officials, including the Department of Homeland Security, CDC, FDA, and the Surgeon General.
