To sign up for one of the appointment times between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 22nd, visit the Red Cross Blood Services website. Type in “stjamesnewport” as the sponsor organization in the search box, and you’ll be taken to the page for our blood drive on their site, where you can sign up to participate in a given timeslot. (You will need to create an account on that website to register with them, however.)
If you do not wish to register on the Red Cross website, please fill out this form and it will be submitted to our church administrator, Kayla Brock, who will set up the appointment with the Red Cross. Available time slots are in 15-minute increments from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
All blood donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Results will be available within seven days after the donation. Each donor will need a Red Cross Blood Donor account to see the results. The easiest way to create an account if you don’t already have one is to download the Red Cross Blood Donor app. To download the app to your smartphone or tablet, text bloodapp to 90999 or search “Red Cross Blood” in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. For details about the Covid-19 antibody test and how to access the results, visit https://www.redcrossblood.org/donate-blood/dlp/covid-19-antibody-testing.html
