Red Cross Blood Drive Coming to St. Louis City Hall August 15

Sponsored by Comptroller Darlene Green, the semi-annual blood drive raises awareness of sickle cell disease and the need for blood donors

St. Louis, MO (STL.News) – The office of St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green will host its semiannual American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, August 15, in Room 208 of St. Louis City Hall, 1200 Market St, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The American Red Cross is facing an emergency blood shortage this summer, and it has issued an urgent call for eligible individuals of all blood types to make a donation in the coming days.  In addition, there is an ongoing need for African American blood donors for sickle cell therapies.  Although there is no cure, Sickle Cell Disease can be managed through blood transfusions.

All donors are welcome to the drive. Walk-ins will be accepted, but appointments are encouraged so that everyone is seen quickly.  To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.
