The Red Cross Donation Center in Montgomery will be open every Monday from 12:00 PM until 6:00 PM accepting blood donations.

While all blood types are needed, there is a special need for type “O”  Negative.  Its’ the universal donor blood.

The Red Cross also has a new Rapid Pass Program.  It allows you to fill out your blood work online so your donation time can be reduced once you reach the donation center.
