About This Event
We are in the midst of a severe blood shortage.
Give the gift of life by joining us at South Shore Hospital for a whole blood and red cell blood drive for the Rhode Island Blood Center.
The drive will be held in the Emerson A & B Conference Rooms, located on the first floor of South Shore Hospital. Please enter the hospital using the McKim Family Main Entrance.
We ask that all donors please observe the required COVID-19 safety precautions, which includes wearing a mask.
Appointments are required and can be conveniently scheduled online.
To schedule your appointment, please visit the Rhode Island Blood Center website.
All donors are encouraged to eat and hydrate prior to their appointments. Please bring identification with you as well.

Unfamiliar with red cell donations?
Donating red blood cells is simple: a device separates your red blood cells from your white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. You're also given a hydrating fluid.
