We currently have a dangerously low supply of blood, well below what is needed. Area hospitals require 350 donations each day to treat patients ranging from trauma victims to newborn babies and their mothers to cancer patients.
Platelets are a component of your blood used to help cancer patients, accident victims and others with blood clotting disorders. Because platelets only last 5-7 days, they are always in high demand.
We're excited to announce the opening of our newest donor center, located conveniently off of Rt. 113 in Dagsboro, DE! Appointments will be available beginning Saturday, May 1, and can be booked online now!
Every week, 1,500 blood donors are needed to give patients a fighting chance.
In most cases, there is not deferral period for blood donation after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
As regions reopen, the need for blood has rebounded to pre-COVID-19 levels, but the blood supply is dangerously low. Donors can call 1.888.825.6638 or schedule an appointment online now.
To protect our staff and donors, donors must wear a face mask when presenting to donate.
To manage donor flow appointments are preferred; walk-ins will be permitted as long as social distancing can be maintained.
Work where you love, serving a mission you can believe in!
