Community Blood Center has issued an URGENT need for blood donations and is calling on all healthy individuals to make a life-saving blood donation.
Hospitals have resumed normal operations and the need for blood has more than doubled. Local blood supply is needed to meet local hospital need.
Thank you for donating* blood at the next blood drive! Appointments are strongly recommended; walk-ins will accepted as capacity allows.

Our staff members are trained in universal precautions to help prevent the risk of spreading infections.
