Save a Life: Donate Blood

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. But according to the American Red Cross, supply can’t always meet demand because only about 3% of age-eligible people donate blood yearly.

Please consider making a generous donation to the Red Cross lifesaving blood supply. To make it easy, the Troy will host an entire week of blood drives this summer at the following convenient times and locations:

Monday, July 22 | Fire-Police Training Center | 4850 John R | 9 am-6 pm
Tuesday, July 23 | Troy Community Center | 3179 Livernois | 9 am-9 pm
Wednesday, July 24 | Troy Community Center | 3179 Livernois | 9 am-9 pm
Thursday, July 25 | First Presbyterian Church | 4328 Livernois | 11am-5 pm
Friday, July 26 | Troy Community Center | 3179 Livernois | 9 am-8 pm

Donation appointments can be easily scheduled by calling 313-300-9617 or 248-524-1147, visiting, or by using the free Blood Donor App. Walk-ins are welcome, but a photo ID or Red Cross Donor Card will be required at the time of donation. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh more than 110 pounds, and be in good general health.
