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

Blood Types Needed

Many variables can impact our blood inventories such as weather, holidays or tragic events.  Every day, patients who need blood are in crisis and you can help by volunteering to donate.  Less than 10% of the population gives blood, so donors that give on a regular basis are important to meet these needs. Schedule an appointment today!
