In addition to the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from helping others, you can get cool gifts as a thank-you when you donate blood with us! Check out our current promotions below. If you’d like to learn more about blood donation, start here:


This August, as our community begins to open up and our daily lives begin to change once again, we want to provide a reminder that the need for blood remains constant. To encourage our community to continue to prioritize blood donation, we are launching our “New Normal” campaign, and asking that you “make blood donation part of your New Normal.”

As a thank-you to those who continue to make time for donation during this difficult summer month, anyone who presents to donate August 1-31 will automatically be entered to win one of eight Apple Watches. Plus, anyone who presents to donate in August and then goes the extra step to book their next appointment beyond August will be entered to win the grand prize: a Peloton Bike! Learn more here.
