The need for blood never ends, which means patients are always counting on the generosity of blood donors – and blood drive hosts – to help keep blood on the shelves. Versiti is asking the community to schedule their next appointment to ensure there is an adequate blood supply to cover the need. The donation process only takes about an hour.

Did you know that 1 in 7 people entering the hospital will need blood? Crucial to donate when you can. If all donors gave just once more during the year, blood shortages would be rare. By giving once every season, you can help bridge the gap for those who don’t give as often!

Safety precautions are in place to protect donors, such as social distancing and mandatory masks. To schedule your appointment go to versiti.org
