  • Red Cross Blood Drive at SBG Buford


    Straight Blast Gym is excited to announce that we will be hosting a blood drive in May of 2020!

    During this difficult time, blood donors are in great need.  The COVID-19 virus has flooded hospitals and created a demand for blood plasma, due to so many blood drives being cancelled.  SBG Buford is stepping in to help those in need!

    Straight Blast Gym will be the host-site for a blood drive on Friday, May 8th.  

    The American Red Cross will be setting up shop in our gym between the hours of 10am and 3pm.  You can set up an appointment by clicking on the link below and creating an account. There is no fee to donate blood, and you are helping to save lives!


    Before you register to donate, please make sure that you meet all of the qualifications below, and are aware of what all is needed to be a donor. 

    • You have not donated blood in the past 56 days
    • You must be in good health and feeling well
    • You must be at least 16 years old in most states
    • You must weigh at least 110 lbs

    If you’d like additional information you can go to their website by clicking the link below:


    All blood donors must wear a mask.  If you do not have one, the Red Cross attendants on hand will provide you with one.  Rest assured that all measures will be taken to assure that we have a safe and effective blood drive that follows all social-distancing guidelines.

    We’re incredibly excited to be able to give back to the community that has done so much for us over the past decade, and we look forward to seeing you on May 8th!
