Save Our Summer!!!

Amid a nationwide blood shortage, our Community Blood Center is in CRITICAL need of ALL blood types. People in our communities are urged to donate blood to help ensure that lifesaving blood products are available when needed.

Blood donors help patients of all ages – accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients and those battling cancer and other life-threatening conditions.

Currently blood supply demand continues to outpace donations, and your help is vital.

Here’s how your single gift can make a big difference.

  • It takes approximately 30 minutes to donate blood
  • 1 pint can potentially save up to 2 patients
  • Someone needs of blood every 2 seconds
  • 37% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood, but only 10% do annually
  • Whole Blood can be donated every 56 days
  • Platelet donations can be donated as often as every 14 days, up to 24 times a year

Each donor will have the choice to receive either a “We Love Our Blood Donors” Tumbler or a “flashlight” keychain when they donate blood July 1st through August 31st at our main location or on the bloodmobile. Plus each time you donate you’ll receive a free wellness checkup which includes blood pressure, pulse, temperature, hemoglobin and cholesterol screening.
