Blood donation 
Walk-ins are welcome the day of the drive, but appointments take priority, so don’t delay and make yours today!

Our goal:

We hope to collect at least 80 units again during this October blood drive, as the American Red Cross still has a critical need for blood donations. ALL blood types are needed to help patients fight illnesses, including cancer, sickle cell and COVID-19, and to help trauma patients and accident and burn victims recover from injuries.
 
A critical need still exists for the universally compatible blood type O, which doctors use most when unexpected trauma occurs and the victim's blood type is unknown.

Ever thought of doing a "Power Red" donation?

Power Red appointments are for donors giving a concentrated dose of red cells, the part of your blood used every day for those needing transfusions as part of their care. Ideal blood types for this donation are O positive, O negative, A negative and B negative. Learn more about this 1.5 hour process.

Your blood donation can help save lives! You also can earn 5 Healthy Lifestyle Activity Points for donating by completing the Community Volunteer/Participation Form.
