Giving blood made easier

Voice of our Readers

To the Editor:
The American Red Cross blood drive is coming to Luverne and is excited to introduce Rapid Pass, a new tool that allows blood donors to help save lives in less time.
Rapid Pass enables the donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their home or office. This reduces the time they spend at the blood drives by as much as 15 minutes. To use Rapid Pass just visit
Read the information, answer the questions, print the pass or email it to yourself, then follow the steps to redeem your pass on the day of your donation.
Donors who do not bring the printed pass or cannot show it on a mobile device will be asked to complete the questions again. The more donors who utilize Rapid Pass, the quicker they will all move through the donation process.
The American Red Cross will be at Grace Lutheran Church on North Highway 75, Luverne, on Sept. 26 from 1-7 p.m.
