Blood Drive

Why should you donate blood? Blood donors save lives. The majority of the population will need blood products in their lifetime and blood donors are important to sustaining our blood supply. You can donate blood if you are in good health, weigh at least 110 lbs and are at least 16 years old (if you are 16-17 years old, you must have parent/guardian permission to donate). It doesn't hurt to donate blood - it's more of a slight pinch to the arm. The whole donation process should take less than 10 minutes. You will donate about 500 ml of blood (approximately 1 pint); the average person has 10-11 pints of blood in their body. Blood can be donated once every 56 days.

If you are interested in donating blood and would like to register for an appointment, please click here and make your appointment! We are looking for approximately 20 committed donors to fill our goal!
