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 

We are proud to be the provider of blood products and services to 123 hospitals in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin from seven regional distribution hubs. As inventory allows, additional units are provided to hospitals across the country through a national resource sharing program.
