While the need for blood is constant, the supply is not. With families going out of town and donors missing their regular appointments, Labor Day weekend is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet the needs of local hospitals. New and returning donors of all types are urgently needed to help maintain our community blood supply.
It takes less than an hour for volunteer blood donors to save lives in our community. And, nearly 100% of the blood donated with Nebraska Community Blood Bank is transfused to patients in Nebraska hospitals.
While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage donors to make appointments in advance. Visit NCBB.ORG or call 1-877-486-9414 to make an appointment today at your local donor center or any of the upcoming September blood drives.
