Blood donors here on December 21 can also take advantage of the new “RapidPass.”  RapidPass allows donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their home or office; reducing the time they spend at the blood drive by up to 15 minutes. It’s simple! Donors just: 1)Visit  2)Read the information 3)Answer the questions  4)Print the pass or email it to themselves.

It is important to know, however, that RapidPass cannot be completed prior to the date of the drive.  Donors must complete the steps to redeem their pass on the day they donate.  Donors who do not bring the printed pass with them to their donation or cannot show it on a mobile device will be asked to complete the questions again.  RapidPass does not take the place of scheduling an appointment.
