HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Nashville Predators Foundation and the American Red Cross are joining together with over 15 organizations to host its largest multi-city blood drive.

The blood drive is August 4th through August 7th and they will have stops in Tennessee, Bowling Green, KY, and Huntsville, AL.

The Red Cross says during the summer they often experience a drastic decline in blood donations, but amid the coronavirus pandemic, the need for blood and blood drive hosts has increased.

How the Blood Drive Works –

  • All presenting donors who pre-schedule an appointment will receive a Predators T-shirt (XL), while supplies last.
  • All presenting donors will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a $100 Nashville Predators Locker Room Gift Card.
  • One winner will be drawn from each blood drive location per day and receive the gift card via email within two weeks after their donation.
  • Additionally, all presenting donors will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card, via email 30 days after their donation on behalf of Amazon*. Donors must have a valid email address on record to receive the gift cards.

“About 80% of Red Cross blood donations are made at blood drives hosted by businesses, schools and community organizations,” said Garry Allison, regional donor services executive, Red Cross Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region. “The Preds realize the impact COVID-19 has had on the ability of many of these groups to host blood drives and wanted to partner with them to provide convenient opportunities for people to give blood in their local community. We’re grateful for their partnership and support of our generous blood drive hosts, which enables us to fulfill our lifesaving mission of helping area hospital patients.”

The Red Cross says they are testing all blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies for a limited time, providing donors insight into whether they have been exposed to this coronavirus. Donors will be able to view their results 7-10 days after donation through the Red Cross Blood Donor App or at RedCrossBlood.org.
