MARYLAND STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES PARTNER WITH
AMERICAN RED CROSS IN BLOOD DRIVE EFFORT
Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police are joining with other state law enforcement agencies to assist the American Red Cross in encouraging the public to donate blood during the coronavirus pandemic. The push to donate blood is an effort by state law enforcement employees in Maryland who want to honor the memories of those Marylanders who lost their lives to COVID-19 and honor the service of all those who help fight it.
As part of this effort, the American Red Cross is partnering with MDTA Police, Maryland State Police, Maryland Natural Resources Police, MDOT Maryland Transit Administration Police and Maryland Capitol Police to launch the #SleevesUpMD Blood Drive. The #SleevesUpMD campaign seeks to raise 150 pledges for blood donations. Blood supplies are at a critical shortage and just one lifesaving, selfless, donation can save as many as three people. Those partnering in this effort are encouraging all Maryland law enforcement, first responders and citizens to help us reach this goal.

Follow the instructions to make a reservation that is easy and convenient for you. A social distance-compliant reservation can be scheduled at any American Red Cross Maryland donation center.
