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!
