Blood Drive for James

A message from Dan, James' father: “It would take someone [who donates regularly] 38 years just to break even and resupply the volume of blood and platelets James consumed. We want to create awareness to the need for blood donations and then give back double, triple…10-times the amount James used.” 

To schedule an appointment, visit our scheduling page or call 1-877-258-4825. Use the code above to register for the drive. Appointments are highly recommended but walk-ins are always welcome.
