January is National Blood Donor Month. Giving Blood is like giving life, without your donation, someone will die. Give blood today. It may be a member of your family or a friend who needs it next.

  Will you donate today?.  Thank you for making 2015 the best year ever for someone and you.

Blood donations help millions of patients in need.  To make the journey from “arm to arm,” every unit goes through a series of steps and tests to ensure that it is as safe as can be.

In the United States, approximately 41,000 units of blood are needed every day. The average transfusion requires around three pints of blood, but a person in a car accident may need as many as 100 pints of blood. 

Blood Type O is the most requested type. People who have O-negative blood are considered to be universal donors; their blood can be used for people with any blood type.

You could help save more than one life with just one donation.

Lets me help you get ready for your donation:

  • Make an appointment: It always helps us to know in advance when you are coming in to make a donation.
  • Hydrate: Be sure to drink plenty of fluids on the day of your donation.
  • Wear Something Comfortable: Wear clothing with sleeves that can easily be rolled up above the elbow.
  • Maintain a Healthy Level of Iron in Your Diet Before Donating: If possible, include iron-rich foods in your diet, especially in the weeks before your donation.

Blood Donation Process:

Bring a List of Medications You Are Taking: We will need to know about any prescription and/or over the counter medications that may be in your system.

Bring an ID-Please bring either your donor card, driver's license or other forms of identification. 

Bring a Friend: Bring along a friend, so that you may both enjoy the benefits of giving blood.

Relax: Blood donation is a simple and very safe procedure so there is nothing to worry about.

There are plenty of places where to donate blood. You have national organisations like:

  •  American Red Cross or America’s Blood Centers and New York Blood Center (NYBC)three of  the largest community-based, non-profit blood collection and distribution organizations in the United States and various regional organisations spread across the country.
  • you can also visit websites like:communitybloodservices.org.  

Give someone a second chance at life.
