The need for blood is constant. As long as there are hospitals with patients, there will be a need for blood. Your donation means another chance at life and this would not be possible without the generosity of volunteer blood donors. It means a few minutes to you, but a lifetime to a patient.
To be eligible to donate, individuals must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good general health the day of the donation. Please bring an I.D. with you.
