Firefighter Appreciation Blood Drives!
May 3–8 Participating Donor Centers and Blood Drives!

Help protect, serve, and save lives alongside local heroes at our annual Firefighter Appreciation blood drive this May!

Firefighter Appreciation Day is May 4 and we want to show our support by hosting blood drives in their honor. Firefighters are among the heroes who run towards danger and unfortunately witness the need for blood on a daily basis.

Donate blood at one of our participating blood drive locations and receive a voucher for a free Protect. Serve. Save t-shirt!

Am I Eligible? You are eligible if you:

  • Are in general good health.
  • Are 16 years of age or older. Individuals under the age of 18 must provide a signed parental/guardian permission form.

  • Are not pregnant.
  • Do not have a cold.

Why donate:

  • Human blood cannot be manufactured.
  • Only donated blood from an unpaid volunteer can be transfused to hospital patients.
  • Only blood collected by LifeServe Blood Center is provided to your LOCAL hospital.
  • Our first responders can’t save lives without precious blood products on hand the moment they’re needed.
  • LifeServe is not affiliated with the Red Cross or for-profit plasma centers.

Since 100% of the blood products needed by your community hospital comes from LifeServe blood donors the strength of that supply is dependent on local donors like you!
