Due to low donations and increased patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially those with AB or O blood type, to donate now. 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!
