Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 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 www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
“My son Jeremy was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia four years ago, when he was 33. If the blood and platelets he needed had not been available, he wouldn’t be here today.He’s in remission now, so a huge thank you to all who take the time to give something so desperately needed by many.In my opinion, you (blood donors) are the best society has to offer.”~ Mark
