Give the gift of life all across Maine on March 27th!

The American Red Cross is teaming up with News Center Maine for their 2nd Annual Blood Drive at various locations throughout Maine.

Currently, the Red Cross has less than a three day supply of most blood types, and blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donatins are coming in, and that's where you can help!

On the 27th the following locations will be accepting donations

1. Portland: Holiday Inn by the Bay (88 Spring St) 8AM-2PM

2. Rockland: Rockland Public Library (80 Union St) 10AM -3PM

3. Waterville: O'Brien's Event Center (375 Main St) 11AM -4PM

4. Bangor: Cross Insurance Center (515 Main St) 1PM - 6PM

5. Lewiston: Franco Center (46 Cedar St) 1PM - 6PM

You can also download The Red Cross Blood Donor App. It makes it easier to schedule and manage donation appointments. It also provides a way to track health history.

Through the app you can access RapidPass, which can save you up to 15 minutes at the blood drive. It allows you to complete the pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online the morning of your appointment.
