Community Blood Bank provides life saving blood to 36 local area hospitals, including all of Sioux Falls. In the last six months, demand has trended up towards an average usage of 600 units per week vs. an average of 450 units being used per week at the beginning of the pandemic. Donating blood is an essential act during the pandemic and crucial for critically ill patients.
“We are extremely grateful for the response and support that has been provided in our communities throughout the area,” says Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. “There seems to be no real end to the higher demands being placed on our community’s blood supply at this time. Please consider donating blood this February and give a gift that comes from the heart and provides hope.”
Community Blood Bank is a joint cooperative of Avera and Sanford Health, taking pride in being self-sufficient, thanks to the generosity of community volunteers. Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with any other blood bank entities.
Please join us this week and schedule an appointment to impact our community’s blood supply.
