Memorial Blood Centers Blood Drive

Wed, May 25, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Patients in local hospitals depend on Memorial Blood Centers to be there with the right blood type they need to survive. All types are needed — most critically type O, Rh negative and platelets. The general blood supply in early May stood at a 2-to-3-day level, with type O and platelets at just a 1-to-2-day level. This is well below the ideal inventory of 5-7 days.

Donating blood is safe for people who are in good health, free of antibiotics for 24 hours (unless taken daily for skin condition), symptom-free for at least three days following a cold or a flu, and age 17 or older (16 with written parental consent).

Walk-in donors are welcome, but appointments are encouraged to help maintain physical distancing. Donors are required to wear a face mask or face covering. To register for a blood drive, schedule online or contact the sponsoring organization directly.
