Urgent Need

Blood supplies critically low

Due to the winter weather and planned travel, all blood types and platelets are urgently needed.


Play a critical role in the community

Cancer patients, trauma victims, and critically ill newborns depend on a stable blood supply.

When you give blood, you give hope to hospital patients in our community.

Host a Blood Drive

When you partner with Memorial Blood Centers as a blood drive sponsor, you help save and sustain lives right here at home.

Type O- Blood

O negative is the universal blood type, which means it can be given to anyone in need like trauma victims or preemie babies.



Save time and complete your health history questionnaire on the day of your donation from the privacy of your home or office.
