RALEIGH — Rex Hospital

wants to be sure it has enough blood on hand for emergencies this holiday weekend.

Holidays are traditionally a slow time for donations, but Rex is making it easy with a 21-hour, non-stop blood drive beginning Thursday.

You can donate blood at two locations:

  • Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Rex Donor Center located at 2709 Blue Ridge Road.
  • 5:30 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday at Rex Hospital, room 1209.
  • The goal is to draw more than 200 donors during the blood drive.
