Important note on blood drive availability during COVID-19 outbreak
With thousands of blood drives cancelled due to school and workplace closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working hard to open new donation sites. If you don’t see available appointments in the near future, please be sure to search 7-15 days out. The need for blood is constant, and patients will need your life saving gift – today, tomorrow and in a few weeks.
