Due to low donations and increased patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially those with AB or O blood type, to donate now. 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!

A winter storm impacting Central and Southern Illinois and the St. Louis region has led to cancellation of multiple blood drives. With more snow and ice in the forecast, additional donors are needed to make up for weather-related losses in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. The early winter storm comes at a time when the Blood Center is working to make up for an expected decrease in donations due to the holiday. For information on local Donor Centers and blood drives, please call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app (links to Apple iOS and Google Play at www.bloodcenter.org/app).
