Blood supplies across the country are running critically low. To do our part to ensure lifesaving blood, plasma, and platelets are readily available for patients in need, State Farm is helping raise awareness about National Blood Donor Month. We are encouraging everyone to schedule their American Red Cross blood donation appointment in January and roll up those sleeves!
It’s quick and easy. Simply, enter your zip code and find a date and time that works best for you. Then, encourage your family and friends to do the same.
This act of kindness is one of the most generous gifts someone can give – the lifesaving gift of blood.
NOTE: According to the American Red Cross, each blood drive and donation center is following the highest standards of safety and infection control (learn more). All blood donors are asked to schedule an advance appointment to ensure proper social distancing and are required to wear a face covering or mask while donating, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) public guidance.

I donate regularly at our local Cascade Regional Blood bank. I hope they are working together.
I also encourage everyone who can to donate. It’s a great feeling to save lives.
