Make a Pledge to Roll Up Your Sleeves to Help Others

Blood inventories are critically low due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately, many blood drives have been canceled due to shut-downs . This has impacted the Red Cross’s ability to collect donations. Daily, 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,600 platelet donations are needed to supply patients at hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.

You Can Help

Summer is traditionally a difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Accidents, medical emergencies and chronic blood conditions don’t take a break. Patients need blood every day. The blood supply must be continuously replenished to help prevent shortages during the coming weeks and months.

State Farm® has hosted American Red Cross blood drives for the past 25 years. Our employees have rolled up their sleeves and donated 45,694 units of blood at State Farm-sponsored drives since 1997.

State Farm invites all our neighbors to join us and the American Red Cross on the SleevesUp Campaign. Visit the State Farm SleevesUp page to make a pledge to give blood and schedule an appointment in your area. Make sure to tell your family and friends.
