The American Red Cross is hosting a blood drive in Twin Falls this Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Blood reserves are dangerously low right now and the American Red Cross desperately needs your donation.

The blood drive is being held at the Church of Ascension, 371 Eastland Drive, here in Twin Falls. All that's required to donate blood is that you are healthy, at least 17 years old in most states, and weigh at least 110 lbs. Sound like you? Here's when you can donate:

  • Monday, October 28th from 1 to 7 pm
  • Tuesday, October 29th from Noon to 6 pm
  • Wednesday, October 30th from 9 am to 1pm

You can schedule an appointment online. Enter sponsor code "twinfalls". Or call Sharla at (208) 734-4566. Questions about online scheduling call Debi (208) 484-0138.

There are many benefits to donating blood! Here are a few:

  • It feels great to donate!
  • You get free juice and delicious cookies.
  • It's something you can spare. Most people have blood to spare... yet, there is still not enough to go around.
  • You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed. Most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.
  • You will be someone's hero. In fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.

The American Red Cross would like to thank you for your donation and support. If you have questions regarding your eligibility to donate blood, please call 1-866-236-3276 or visit redcrossblood.org.
