Blood Drives Planned In January

This January, the American Red Cross and Pro Football Hall of Famer and blood donor Peyton Manning are asking people to score big for patients in need – while getting a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona – by giving blood.

The start of the new year marks National Blood Donor Month – a time to celebrate those who generously roll up a sleeve to keep blood products stocked for hospitals providing critical care. As the busy holiday season winds down and the threat of severe winter weather and seasonal illness cases continue to rise, January can be a tough time for donors to make and keep appointments.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities in Roosevelt County include Jan. 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Bainville School and on Jan. 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gospel Fellowship Church in Wolf Point.

Step off the sidelines and resolve to donate blood. To book a time to give, visit, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or call 1-800-RED CROSS. In partnership with the National Football League, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma Jan. 1-31, 2023, are automatically entered to win a trip for two to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona*, including access to day-of, in-stadium pre-game activities, tickets to the official Super Bowl Experience, round-trip airfare to Phoenix, three-night hotel accommodations plus a $500 gift card for expenses. To lead the offense against a potential winter blood shortage, Manning invites the public to join him in helping save lives. “If everyone does their part, and we collectively commit to donating blood, we can stack up more wins for hospital patients who are counting on us,” he said. “A single individual is certainly impactful, but a whole team of people coming together to donate has an even greater effect.”
