Donate blood and get a $5 Amazon gift card

The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to help patients in need this holiday season by making an appointment to give blood or platelets.

While helping to save lives is likely motivation enough, those who come out to give from Nov. 18 to Dec. 18 will also receive a $5 Gift Card via email, courtesy of Suburban Propane (Restrictions apply; see More information and details are available at

Right now, there is a critical need for type O blood donors.
It’s easy to find a blood drive. Donors can search for drives by ZIP code and make an appointment to donate using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, online at, by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
The entire donation process takes only about an hour, but donors can save time with RapidPassPre-donation reading and health history questions can be completed online to save about 15 minutes.
By donating, donors receive a mini-health screening to help determine eligibility that includes blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin readings. First-time donors will also find out their blood type soon after donating.

The next American Red Cross blood drive in Hudson County is happening Nov. 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hyatt Hotel, 2 Exchange Place in Jersey City.
