Critical Need Due to Winter Weather

Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (a total of 86) leading to a loss of more than 2800 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.

If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app

We will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather on the blood supply at
