Please donate blood Monday!

Posted on August 25th, 2017 by Sara


It is incredibly difficult to generate enough donations during this time of year, yet the need for blood never takes a vacation.

70% of us will require a blood transfusion at some point, in our lifetime, yet only 8% of the eligible population donates blood!  Mark your calendar now for this lifesaving event!

Monday, August 28th

Walk-in Service ONLY

Answers to the most common questions:

Yes, you CAN donate if you’ve had a flu shot.
Yes, you CAN donate if you’ve had a tattoo in the past 12 months – as long as it was performed in a licensed facility in Washington, Idaho, Oregon or California

Yes, you CAN donate if you are a diabetic – as long as you are healthy you are able to give

Yes, you CAN donate if you are taking blood pressure medicine, as long as your blood pressure is within range


There are very few things that give life more meaning than saving someone else’s.

Thank you for being a life-saver!
