BLOOD SHORTAGE: URGENT/CRITICAL NEED for ALL DONATIONS & BLOOD TYPES. Click here to schedule your donation and help spread the word!

There is no deferral for COVID-19 vaccinations currently being administered in the U.S. and donors are not required to show status. Learn more about our Coronavirus Pandemic Response and COVID-19 Vaccinations. As part of the healthcare community, we are still requiring masks for donors, staff, volunteers and visitors to our facilities and blood drives but will provide updates if this changes. We will provide a mask for those who need one. Appointments are required but can be made the day of donation by contacting us at 800-747-5401.  

We're excited to announce that our organization is now officially named ImpactLife! Read more about our evolution here: www.bloodcenter.org/impactlife 

MAREK

After the surgeries, Marek went through chemotherapy treatment at St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Due to side effects from the chemotherapy treatments, he received platelet and whole blood transfusions about once a month. Due to the generous donations of many, our son’s life was saved! Prior to this, I had never donated blood. I always made excuses as to why I couldn't donate. However, I vowed that I would at least try to donate. It was the least I could do to help people in need of it.

"I want people to know that just ten minutes of your time and one pint of your blood can help save lives, like our son's. What better gift can you give someone?"
