American Red Cross Blood Drive

(St. Louis – January 19, 2023) Donors can warm hearts this winter when they give blood with the American Red Cross and the City of St. Louis Office of the Comptroller.

The office of St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green encourages residents to help by making a blood donation at its semiannual community blood drive on Monday, February 6, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Room 208 of St. Louis City Hall.

The Red Cross urgently needs blood and platelet donors to meet the needs of patient care, and there is ongoing need for African American blood donors for sickle cell therapies.

*All who come to give in February will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card by email, thanks to our partners at Amazon! Plus, those who come to give in February will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Florida, including round-trip airfare,
a three-night stay at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach and a $100 voucher for the resort’s Ocean Hai restaurant, plus a $750 gift card for expenses. Details are available at
