American Red Cross of Rhode Island GIVE BLOOD
Rhode Island Blood Center
Many generous Americans nationwide have been donating blood since the terrorist attacks September 11 to ensure a sustained and secure blood supply for all Americans. Together with the Red Cross, these blood heroes are ensuring that the safest possible blood is readily available whenever and wherever needed - for the military, for other blood centers in America and for all 5,000 of America's hospitals.

We all expect blood to be there for us, but barely a fraction of those who can give do. Yet sooner or later, virtually all of us will face a time of great vulnerability in which we will need blood. And that time is all too often unexpected. From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The honor, spirit and resources of the American people comes forth with neighbors helping neighbors in need - during earthquakes, floods, fires, storms - and also for the deeply personal and often quiet disasters that require a gift of blood.

To schedule a blood donation, call the Rhode Island Blood Center at 1-800-283-8385.

You may also visit www.givelife.org or call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543).


American Red Cross of Rhode Island BE A TISSUE DONOR
Did you know that just one tissue donor can potentially benefit as many as 50 people? It's true. When you sign on to become a donor, your generous gift could bring many people new life.

Thanks to people like you, 600,000 lives have been enhanced since the establishment of American Red Cross Tissue Services in 1982. However, the need for tissue continues to grow, and tissue such as skin for burn patients and certain sizes of heart valves for cardiac patients is in high demand.

We need your help.

Becoming a tissue donor is simple, two-step process. First, sign a donor card or driver's license; second, share your decision with your family, because next of kin is always asked for consent. There is no cost to you or your family. All costs related to tissue donation are paid for by the agency recovering the tissue.

CLICK HERE to learn more about how you can help.

To schedule a tissue donation, call the Rhode Island Blood Center at 1-800-283-8385.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island DONATE GOODS
The worst moments often bring out the best in people. Disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes often ignite an outpouring of generosity from individuals and communities who are moved to assist those whose lives have been affected. The images of devastation prompt many to respond by donating goods for the victims. Donations of goods and services, also known as in-kind donations, can be valuable resources on a relief effort.

In-kind donations are always welcome, whether you are a citizen who wishes to make an in-kind donation of household items, a manufacturer or distributor that has a large bulk donation that would be appropriate for Red Cross relief efforts, or a company that is interested in making a bulk donation of medical supplies or equipment.

Because the American Red Cross of Rhode Island is not set up to handle and store in-kind donations, we urge you to contact any of the following agencies to arrange

Rhode Island Community Food Bank

RI Dept. of Human Services

The Salvation Army

Travelers Aid

your donation:

For any questions regarding donating goods, please contact Angie Moncada, Director of Communications & Special Events, at [email protected] or call 401-831-7700 x101.
