Our Blood Saves Lives. Schedule Your Appointment to Donate Blood Today.
Blood donors who are Black play a critical role in helping people with sickle cell disease, the most common genetic blood disease in the U.S. Patients with the disease may rely on regular blood transfusions throughout their lives to prevent sickle cell complications, such as organ and tissue damage, severe pain, and strokes. It is essential that the blood they receive be the most compatible match possible, which generally comes from someone of the same race or similar ethnicity. When you come to give between June 1 – 30, you’ll get a $5 e-gift card to the merchant of your choice, as our way of saying thanks.** Terms and conditions apply.
