Give Local. Save Local.
January 26th – East Parking Lot
8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Help save a life during National Blood Donor Month by donating this weekend.
Every 2 seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. Donor blood is regularly transfused for medical cases involving cancer, loss of blood during major surgeries, pregnancy or childbirth complications, organ transplants, as well as traumatic injuries.
Our area is facing an emergency need for all blood types to help patients in local hospitals. January is always a time of need due to a decrease of donations through the holidays and an increase in needs at the hospitals. All blood types are needed, especially negative blood types and O negative, which is the universal donor that can be used by all patients in an emergency.
You can make an appointment in advance, or feel free to arrive at your convenience and wait for a turn.
Come Join Us!
