TROY, Mich. -

The City of Troy is sponsoring a city-wide Red Cross Blood Drives starting Monday, July 14, and running through Thursday, July 17

The need is great and the city is looking to supplement critically low blood supplies in the area.

"The blood needs of our community can only be met by support from volunteer blood donors," City of Troy Community Affairs Director Cindy Stewart said. "Donations are critical for burn victims, open-heart surgeries, some chemotherapy and leukemia patients, and disaster relief. One donation can help save the lives of up to three people."

Walk-ins are welcome but the Community Affairs office at City Hall is also scheduling appointments. You can call 248.524.1147 or sign up by visiting www.redcrossblood.orgThe access code for the site is troy.  

Requirements:

  • photo ID or Red Cross Donor Card
  • must be at least 17 years old
  • weigh more than 110 pounds
  • good general health to donate.
