platelet donors neededUrgent: Platelet Donors Needed

Platelets have a short shelf life, making Fridays-Monday critical days for donations. Your platelet donation is crucial for cancer patients, transplant recipients, trauma victims, and heart surgery patients.

"Thank you so much for donating! We received platelets to help our 3 year old son, Ian (pictured above) who has a rare and undiagnosed cancer. These platelets will help aid his recovery and make him feel better." Kristina, Ian's mom

Give EarlyQ Review a Try!

EarlyQ Review is a great way to streamline our donor experience!

You will be prompted at the end of the questionnaire if you want to proceed with EarlyQ Review which will send your results to our staff to review and follow-up if needed!

Blood Types Needed

Many variables can impact our blood inventories such as weather, holidays or tragic events.  Every day, patients who need blood are in crisis and you can help by volunteering to donate.  Less than 10% of the population gives blood, so donors that give on a regular basis are important to meet these needs. Schedule an appointment today!

Sarah - Why I Give


I came very close to bleeding to death and my life was saved, in part, by donated blood. It seems wrong to me to not give now, when I am capable of doing so.
