Donate blood to the Red Cross, win a chance to win a motorhome

The American Red Cross, Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, and Suburban Propane have teamed up to encourage communities to commit to a simple act with a powerful impact: donating blood or platelets to patients in need.

“Here’s your chance to make a difference,” said Jerry Rice. “You never know who you might be helping. It could be a friend or a family member who needs blood – and that’s why it’s so important.”

As a thank you, Suburban Propane is fueling a lifetime of road trip memories with a special occasion for donors who answer the call to empower patients. Those who come to donate blood, platelets or plasma from April 19 to May 19, 2022 will be automatically entered to win a travel trailer that can accommodate eight people. Plus, those who donate will also receive a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice, courtesy of Suburban Propane.

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, platelets or plasma, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Health Information for Donors

The Red Cross is testing all donations for COVID-19 antibodies for a limited time. The results can indicate whether the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies against this coronavirus after vaccination or previous exposure, whether or not they developed symptoms.

Plasma from routine blood, platelet and plasma donations that have high levels of COVID-19 antibodies can be used as convalescent plasma to meet the potential future needs of COVID-19 patients with compromised immune systems .

The Red Cross does not test donors for infection, which is called a diagnostic test. To protect the health and safety of Red Cross staff and donors, it is important that people who have been asked to self-quarantine or who suspect they may have COVID-19 delay donating until until they have no symptoms for 10 days and feel well and healthy.
