Lexington Community Blood Drive

Join an elite group in your community; donate blood with the American Red Cross. Helping save lives with the American Red Cross isn’t rocket science. It’s really simple math: one donor may help save the lives of three people. When you donate blood at a Red Cross blood drive, you join an elite group of people – lifesaving blood donors.

Locally, donations can be made at the Lexington Community Blood Drive, Tuesday, January 17th, 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
