You Can Still Give Blood During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The virtual MJH Life Sciences Sleeves Up Blood Drive is being held from March 31 through April 30.

During times like these, we must come together and help those in need. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to help our community, Contagion®'s parent company will be hosting the virtual MJH Life Sciences Sleeves Up Blood Drive from March 31 through April 30. Every pint of blood donated can save up to 3 lives.

"You can still go out and give blood. We’re worried about potential blood shortages in the future. Social distancing does not have to mean social disengagement," said US Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams, MD, MPH, in a Red Cross press release.

Companies or groups interested in hosting virtual drives can go to https://sleevesup.redcrossblood.org/. Those who would like to donate can download the American Red Cross Blood Donor app.

Then please spread the word on social media that people can help the American Red Cross continue to deliver its lifesaving mission nationwide because of this public health emergency by texting REDCROSS to #90999 to make a $10 donation, visiting redcross.org, or calling 1-800-REDCROSS to donate.

Thank you!
