‘Tis the Season to Make a Difference. Donate Blood.

Heart with Red Cross logo being held by two hands

It’s holiday season! It’s a busy time for most people, but no matter the season, many patients still need the gift of blood. In fact, the Red Cross must collect 14,000 blood donations each day to meet ongoing patient need.

Make a difference in someone’s life—and their holidays—by participating in Johns Hopkins Bayview’s blood drive, scheduled for December 20-22, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Knott Conference Center. All participants will receive a meal coupon, parking pass and special gift from the Medical Center.

Eligible donors can make twice the difference by scheduling a “power red” donation. During this type of donation, a machine separates the red blood cells from other blood components and returns the remaining components back to the donor. By doing this, the machine is able to double the amount of red cells it would normally collect in a standard blood donation. Donors are actually donating two units of blood, instead of one, and saving twice the number of lives.

For more information or to schedule a life-saving donation, call 410-550-0289.
