Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
In addition to providing blood products to our service hospitals, we also offer training programs and consultations to help our partners in the medical community stay current on trends in transfusion medicine and optimize their use of blood products to improve treatment outcomes. Contact your Client Services Coordinator for more information.
