Join us on Friday, July 23 from 12 to 6 p.m. ET as we host a Blood Drive with the Palmetto South Carolina Region of the American Red Cross.
The blood drive to support the state of South Carolina will be hosted in the Jim Hunter Media Center in the historic Darlington infield.
Members of the community wanting to donate blood will need to sign up online at redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Use the code “DarlingtonRaceway” in the Find a Blood Drive field on the homepage. Darlington blood drive participants should enter the facility through Gate 39A, proceed through the vehicular tunnel and follow signs to the Jim Hunter Media Center.
To save up to 15 minutes at the blood drive, donors are encouraged to complete a RapidPass, a pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire, upon arrival. To complete a RapidPass, donors can follow the instructions at redcross.org/rapidpass or use the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
To ensure the safety of blood donors, protocols have been updated to keep all guests healthy while donating blood. The American Red Cross is also testing every unit for COVID-19 antibodies. To learn more about COVID-19 blood donation safety protocols, click here.
