Donate Blood August 18 in Prosser

A man wearing a facemask donates blood

Benton REA and the Prosser Holiday Inn Express & Suites will cosponsor a blood drive at the hotel August 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The American Red Cross continues to monitor the situation and is committed to operating blood drives in the safest way possible.

At each blood drive, Red Cross staff follow the highest standards of safety and infection control with these precautions:

  • Checking the temperature of all staff, volunteers and donors before they enter the blood drive. If anyone has a temperature greater than 99.5 degrees, they will not be allowed to enter.
  • Wearing gloves throughout the drive and changing them often.
  • Wearing facemasks according to CDC public guidelines.
  • Enhancing disinfecting by asking donors to use hand sanitizer before and during the donation process.
  • Allowing 6-feet between donor areas.

All donors at the August 18 drive will receive a $5 Amazon e-gift card from the Red Cross. To schedule a donation, visit RedCrossBlood.org and use sponsor code BREA or call 509-781-6753.
