Blood drive at Conway Regional

Conway Regional Medical Center will host a blood drive on Tuesday, Dec. 8, and Wednesday, Dec. 9. The drive will be held in the Auditorium from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Officials with the Red Cross are taking steps to speed up the process the day of the donation. On that day, donors can go to and complete both the health history check and book reading and print out a copy or save it to their mobile device. Donors can go straight to a recliner for their donation and save half the time. The rapid pass is only valid the day of the donation.

Donors are encouraged to make appointments online at, using the sponsor code ConwayRegional or by calling 1.800.733.2767. However, walk-in donors are accepted.

Donors can enter a drawing for a $50 Walmart gift card each day of the drive. According to the Red Cross, each donation of whole blood can benefit as many as three people.
