The Grant County Community Blood Drive was recognized for the outstanding participation in blood donation for its March 2020 drive. The assigned goal for the two-day drive was exceeded both days.

The American Red Cross will be in John Day on from noon to 6 p.m. June 18 and from 10 a.m. to 3p.m. June 19 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for a blood drive.

In response to COVID-19, additional measures are in place to ensure donor/volunteer and staff safety, and therefore it is recommended that donors pre-schedule an appointment and come during that scheduled time only. Walk-in donations cannot be accepted.

Sign up online at Contact the Grant County ambassador at 801-656-8069 or an American Red Cross representative at 541-228-5667. Use the Rapid Pass online the day of your appointment, if possible.
