Patients are in urgent need of blood. You can help.
Red cells carry oxygen throughout the body and are needed for hospital patients who may have experienced a loss of blood due to surgery or a car accident, or a patient suffering from anemia.
- A $15 e-gift card (with a lot of great options) is yours when you make a double-red cell donation March 1-25 at a LifeStream donor center or participating mobile drive! Cannot be combined with other promos.
- Please note: Participating drives are subject to change without notice.
What is a Double-Red Cell Donation?
A double-red cell donation is 2 units of collected red blood cells as opposed to a single unit taken during a whole-blood donation.
How Long Does It Take?
A double-red cell donation takes about 1.5 hours (or less) to complete from registration to canteen.
How Often Can I Donate A Double-Red Cell Donation?
You can give a double-red cell donation every 16 weeks, or 4 months. Appointments are required.
Am I Eligible?
Male donors must be at least 5’1″ and weigh more than 130 pounds. Female donors must be at least 5’5″ and weigh more than 150 pounds.
Why Give A Double-Red Cell Donation?
Donating double-red cells has the greatest impact on the community around you and the patients who need you. While one donation can save up to three lives, oftentimes a single patient will need many donations to survive.
