Why is donating blood important?Blood cancer interferes with the production of cells and platelets in the bone marrow. While treatment can eradicate cancer cells in the marrow, they can also harm healthy cells as well. Blood donated by donors can help replenish cells, platelets and other blood components to help keep children healthy and thriving during treatment.
Do I need to make an appointment?Yes, all donors would need to follow the registration process through the link above in order to schedule an appointment time. Appointment times are available Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 8am until 1pm.
Can I walk-in or show up without an appointment?No. In order to give our donors a unique blood donating experience, we will not be accommodating or accepting walk-ins.
