Please consider giving the gift of life. Blood donors play a valuable and essential role in today's health care system. Every day, hospital patients receive lifesaving blood transfusions. The blood that these patients receive is provided by volunteer blood donors.
There is no substitute for human blood. Our blood supply is a result of healthy, caring citizens voluntarily donating blood to be used by anyone who needs it.
Most people donate whole blood. The entire donation process is usually completed in under an hour, and the actual donation takes less than 15 minutes. Whole blood contains red blood cells, plasma, platelets, and other blood components.
Donating blood is a rewarding way to help others. Many people feel a deep sense of personal satisfaction after giving blood. When you donate blood, you touch someone's life in a very real and special way.
If you have any questions about giving blood, please call the Community Blood Center at (800)280-4102.
