Did you know that you can still donate blood even during the pandemic?

Actually, it's very much the opposite; blood and plasma donations are needed now more than ever. As long are the donor is not feeling ill and doesn't have any symptoms, they can still donate. Anyone who would like to donate blood or plasma and has had the Covid-19 vaccine can do so as long as they can provide the vaccine manufacturer’s name.

3 reasons you should SIGN UP & donate blood...

  • Donors are always needed but especially in May. These blood donations help ensure blood products are available for patients in the summer.
  • All donors in May will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a travel trailer camper powered by Suburban Propane.
  • Donors who give blood between May 1st and 15th will receive a $5 Amazon.com E-Card, courtesy of Suburban Propane.
