WE NEED BLOOD LIKE BACKYARDS NEED BARBECUES!
The need for blood is constant because it’s the blood on the shelves that saves lives. As the only supplier of blood to 13 local hospitals, we need to see 800 donors a week to meet the demand.
To celebrate 70 years of saving lives in our community, our goal is to recruit 7,000 new donors in 2023. Help us reach our goal by committing to give blood this year.

Why do people give blood?
Because they like to help others – and because giving feels amazing. In busy, complicated times, giving blood is an easy, meaningful way to make a difference. In fact, this simple gift can enhance the lives of up to three people. Giving blood only takes about one relaxing hour, and we – and your body – do all of the work. Remember, blood is a gift – straight from the heart. Your heart. Please share it today!
