We Called. You Answered. Now We Have a Request.
We received an overwhelming outpouring of support after our appeal for blood donors last week. If you already donated or scheduled an appointment to give blood, thank you! If you haven’t yet but are wanting to get involved to keep our community blood supply stable, please schedule an appointment now. We are vigilant about your health and safety as well as those of our team members. Due to enhanced social distancing protocols, we are not accepting walk-in donations. Only donors with scheduled appointments will be able to give blood.
Maintaining a stable blood supply in the weeks and months ahead is critical to our community’s healthcare. Our number one priority is a safe and adequate blood supply supported by healthy volunteer blood donors. We strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment in the next several weeks to guarantee a strong supply as the weeks press on. Please call 800-287-4903 or click here to schedule your lifesaving appointment.
An additional social distancing measure currently in place is the ability to complete your donation screening questionnaire via QuickPass on the day of donation (this needs to be done on the date of your appointment, no earlier.). By completing your screening questionnaire ahead of time, you are skipping a step that would otherwise need to be completed at the blood donation site. This tool is one more effort to keep you and our team members safe and healthy.
These unprecedented times call for extraordinary efforts of generous people like you. Thank you for being a blood donor and supporting your community blood supply! It’s your blood, your hospital, and ultimately your neighbors that are at the heart of our work.
