During the summer, several thousand fewer donations are given each month on average compared to the rest of the year; this year the donation decline is also being impacting by the continued impact of COVID-19 and workforce shortages. Also, in Northern California – where devastating fire seasons impact donors’ availability to donate, your support is critical. Your donation could save the life of a child who suffered a terrible accident, a grandmother battling cancer or a friend with a blood disorder fighting for their life. Schedule your appointment to donate now. Because of you, life doesn’t stop.
All donors receive a Round Table pizza pass, good for one personal-size 1-topping pizza and an exclusive Summer Classic blood donor T-shirt!

"I believe the idea that my blood could help save a life is so amazing. Even though I am not a trained medical professional, I can still make a positive impact on others." — Chris, Blood Donor
