Summer Blood Drive 2019

The Summer Blood Drive is our yearly blood donation campaign that runs from May 20 to September 11. The campaign serves to increase blood donations to support the needs of Delmarva hospitals during the critical summer months when donations often decline by 25%, while also raising the awareness of the important role the Blood Bank of Delmarva plays in the community.

Theme: #GiveYourBestLife

...means we are at our best selves, living our best lives when we are part of a community. When we are helping others, we see the best in ourselves and are able to give back to the community. In those moments where we are living and giving our best life through blood and platelet donations, we can immediately see the direct impact on our community, through our blood recipients. One hour of giving your best life can make a lifetime of difference in the life of a friend or family member.
