Harmony will be hosting a bloodmobile at the Harmony Community Center from 1-7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. All donors will be required to provide identification before donating, so please remember your donor card or driver’s license.
Donors are encouraged to use a new option available online to speed up the donation process. RapidPass, redcrossblood.org/RapidPass, is a tool that allows the donor to complete the reading and question portions of their donation from their home. This must be done the day of the blood drive and printed out to bring along, or it can be emailed to themselves to show on a mobile device when they come to donate.
Typically, all healthy men and women who are at least 16 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate blood. Donors who are 16 must have the written permission of a parent or guardian. Parental consent forms will be available on the day of the blood drive.
There is no upper age limit, and the time commitment is minimal.
While walk-ins are more than welcome, donors are highly encouraged to make appointments. To make an appointment, please call Marilyn Bratager at (507) 937-3406 or schedule one online at www.redcrossblood.org.
