additional information

By donating blood you are able to help local patients at hospitals across our region. The whole process for donating blood take about 60 minutes. Below are the steps for giving blood. At the Cresco Blood Drive you will also have additional tubes drawn for the Allergy Test.

The information given for the blood draw will remain with ImpactLife and used only for purposes of identifying the units of blood donated. After registration you will be given a Donor ID and you can create an account with 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!
