Make a difference this summer.


Summer is traditionally a challenging season for blood collection with donations declining by as much as 20 percent or more. This is due to high school and college blood drives being on break for the summer, regular donors vacationing, community members juggling logistics for work/home, etc.

At this time, all blood types are needed. Blood type O-negative is always in need because these donors are the universal blood donors, meaning their whole blood and red blood cell donations can help any patient even if the patient’s blood type is different. For cases where blood type cannot be immediately assessed, e.g., motor vehicle accident victims with massive blood loss, Blood Type O-negative is the blood that is used. Blood type O-negative is also used for premature and young babies.
