Blood Drives

Check your watch or your phone. Note the time. On average in the U.S., during the next hour, 1,800 people are going to need blood.

Here's the good news: giving blood usually takes about an hour. And it can help save up to three lives.

To ensure there is an ample blood supply in our region, Johns Hopkins Bayview hosts an American Red Cross blood drive every 56 days. If you are an eligible donor, we encourage you to participate in one of our upcoming drives:

  • October 21-23, 2019
  • December 18-20, 2019
  • February 17-19, 2020
  • April 20-22, 2020
  • June 17-19, 2020
  • August 21-23, 2020
  • October 21-23, 2020
  • December 18-20, 2020

Schedule your life-saving donation today (enter sponsor: johnshopkinsbayview). All participants receive a parking pass, meal coupon and special “thank you” gift from the Medical Center.
