Due to a decrease in donations after Labor Day Weekend and a spike in patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially Type O (Rh-positive or Rh-negative), to donate now. Additional platelet donations are also needed this week.
Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and when you give blood or platelets you could be helping some of the littlest patients. More than 17% of all blood products go to help cancer patients, so your donation makes a difference.

In fact, we think everyone should know about your dedication to helping save lives! Please share your post-donation photos on our social channels, tag us!Click here to view our social media toolkit to help spread childhood cancer awareness.
