F3 blood drive -Freed to Bleed-

Excited to announce the first ever F3Louisville blood drive! We have partnered with the Red Cross, to help deliver blood components to our cities much depleted blood reserves.

As of today, our region has seen 1020 blood drive cancellations due to COVID-19. Nearly 90,150 fewer blood components will be available to hospitals as a result of these cancellations. Nationally, the number of COVID-19-related cancellations has swelled, resulting in millions of donations going uncollected.

1 in 4 units of blood delivered to trauma centers in our region in 2019 was delivered following an ASAP or STAT request. Each of these requests must be addressed in fractions of an hour. Our ability to respond to emergency requests remains dangerously delicate due to blood drive cancellations, however.
