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.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate a birthday than by donating blood so that someone else can celebrate theirs. We’ve created the Birthday Challenge, a fun and fulfilling way to have a “give back” birthday. The Birthday Challenge is an opportunity for you to have your friends, family, co-workers and basically everyone you know help celebrate your birthday by saving lives. It can be a dedicated blood drive, a party at one of our donor centers, or even just an ongoing commitment to reach a specific number of donations. We’ve designed a Birthday Challenge toolkit, which includes:
Every time you donate, you’re giving someone another birthday. On behalf of patients counting on those lifesaving donations, thank you for taking the Birthday Challenge. To register your "Birthday Challenge" with us, please fill out the form below.
