Winter weather has caused hundreds of lost donations over the weekend. Please give as soon as able. All types are needed, especially universal donors. For those eligible to donate, please find a Donor Center or mobile blood drive near you at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or by calling (800) 747-5401.
"I began donating blood in high school during the student council-led blood drive. As I got older, I donated sporadically, but when my father became ill and needed blood transfusions, I saw firsthand the need to be a regular donor.My goal for 2018 is to donate blood every 56 days as I am able. I encourage everyone to give the gift of life with me. It's an easy, cheap way to give back to our community! And you might just make some new friends at the drive!"~ Mary Catherine, blood donor
