Sleepy Eye’s upcoming blood drive, originally scheduled to take place at Sleepy Eye Medical Center, will now take place at the Sleepy Eye Event Center from 12:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30. In addition to the location change, the time change may affect some donors who signed up in advance. Volunteers will be calling any donors affected by the change in order to reschedule appointment times. Donors who wish to reschedule themselves may call the Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767, if they choose.
Walk-ins will be accepted, but appointments are preferred. To schedule an appointment, call the Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767 or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter “56085” as the zip code location.
Donors can give blood every 56 days or every 120 days for those who donate double red cells. Those with eligibility questions should call the donor health line at 1-866-236-3276.
Sleepy Eye Medical Center thanks Jane Fischer and Sleepy Eye Community Blood Drive volunteers for hosting this important event.
