Blessed to be Midwest!
Thank you, LifeServers. From the first whispering of the COVID-19 pandemic, you were there, booking appointments and offering to host blood drives! We are honored and so grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of support from our communities. If you already donated or scheduled an appointment to give blood, thank you!
Maintaining a stable blood supply is critical at all times, even unprecedented weeks like these. The summer slump lies ahead. During a normal year, weddings, vacations, outdoor fun, graduation ceremonies, and other summer activities would put a huge dent in our blood collection forecast. We’re not sure what this year will hold, but we’re hoping you’ll be there to help ensure hospital patients have access to the blood they’ll need! Outdoor fun and projects in the home could be more popular than ever as the weather warms up. Unfortunately accidents can happen and transfusions will be needed.
We encourage eligible blood donors to schedule an appointment in the coming months to guarantee a strong supply as the pandemic lasts and summer begins. Please call 800-287-4903 or click here to schedule your lifesaving appointment. Only donors with pre-scheduled appointments will be able to donate. We are not currently accepting walk-ins.
These 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.
