Due to a decrease in donations after Labor Day Weekend and a spike in patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially Type O (Rh-positive or Rh-negative), to donate now. Additional platelet donations are also needed this week.
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!
Step 1: For the best donation experience, we recommend you schedule an appointment. If you are unsure of when your last donation was, you can confirm your eligibility date by calling (800) 747-5401 or online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org.
Step 2: Gather your personal information, including medications and travel information. If you are 16 years old, remember to bring your signed parental consent form along with you to your donation.
Step 3: Complete the questionnaire independently and in a private setting AFTER 12:00 a.m. (midnight) on the day of your donation. If you're unsure or unable to answer a question, skip it by clicking NEXT. Our staff will review with you at your donation.
Step 4: At the end of the questionnaire, you will be emailed (check your junk/spam folders as well) a code which you can either print or display on your phone at your donation. You can also take a screenshot of the code and save it to your phone photo library to display as well. The code will EXPIRE at 11:59 p.m. that same day. If you plan to print your code, you will need Adobe Acrobat. Click here for a free download.Click here for frequently asked questions.
