URGENT NEED FOR VOLUNTEER DONORS - Low supply of type O red blood cells, AB plasma and Convalescent PlasmaBlood donation is safe and essential!  Recent changes to donor eligibility criteria may allow more to give. Please fill out the deferral/eligibility inquiry form if you have questions.

There is no deferral period for volunteer donors who receive COVID-19 Vaccines and wish to give whole blood, double reds or platelet/plasma apheresis donations.  However, due to uncertainty of the immune response from the vaccine, donations cannot be used for Convalescent Plasma for COVID-19 patients.

Keeping Families Whole

In May of 2013, Emily experienced a ruptured ectopic pregnancy that caused intense pain and internal bleeding. After collapsing at home, she was rushed to the hospital and into surgery where she received a blood transfusion.

Emily is with us today thanks to the skill and care of paramedics, doctors and nurses who treated her and the volunteer donors who helped save her life. 

"This kept my family whole," says Emily. "This kept me here. This allowed my son to still have a mother, and allowed my husband to still have a wife. It was a feeling of being forever grateful."

As the school year ends and summer holidays begin, the rate of blood donation decreases by about 20%, but patient need at hospitals we serve remains the same.

"This kept my family whole," says Emily. "This kept me here. This allowed my son to still have a mother, and allowed my husband to still have a wife. It was a feeling of being forever grateful."
