Benefits of Donating:

  • It feels great to donate!
  • It's something you can spare – most people have blood to spare... yet, there is still not enough to go around.
  • You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed – most people don't think they'll ever need blood, but many do.
  • You will be someone's hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.
