Donate Blood at Pint for a Pint, 9/3

Pint for a Pint at Common Block is back! Join us on Thursday, September 3rd from 12-6pm for our annual community blood drive with the American Red Cross. We’re giving vouchers for a free pint to anyone who donates, as a way to say thank you for helping those in need!

Give a pint, get a pint

To make an appointment to donate, call 541-708-1334 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code “CommonBlock.”

You can help hospitals around the country meet patient needs, and earn a pint at the same time. Giving never tasted so good! Post-donation vouchers can be used toward a beer or non-alcoholic beverage, and redeemed on your donation visit or at a later date. Your donation, your choice.

Facts about blood donations

  • Giving blood is absolutely considered essential!
  • Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products need to be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.
  • Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.

Schedule your appointment

Blood donation appointments typically take 45 minutes from start (sign-in) to finish. Walk-ins are welcome, but we recommend holding your place ahead of time by booking a time slot for Pint for a Pint. Remember to bring your driver’s license for ID!

The Red Cross Blood Mobile will be sitting on the street in front of Common Block. You can’t miss it!¬†Masks will be required, and please stay home if you are experiencing a fever or any flu-like symptoms. Volunteers will be checking temperatures, giving hand sanitizer, wearing gloves and sanitizing surfaces throughout the drive. You know, all the good stuff to keep everyone healthy!

We look forward to seeing you for Pint for a Pint on September 3rd, and toasting your support of the Red Cross!
