The Darien/Stamford Chapter of the American Red Cross collects blood on a regular basis. A person must be 17 or older and at least 110 pounds to donate blood. Many questions will be asked in order to assure the donated blood will be safe. The entire process takes about an hour, including questions, donation, rest time, and snacks afterward.

Call 203-363-1041 or visit dsredcross.org for the schedule.
