Due to increasing demands on the need for blood and the decreases in collections associated with issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Blood Bank has moved into a critical shortage status. Currently, local blood supplies are seriously low with an overall decrease in supplies between 40 – 50%.

“Simply put, we need donors to make an impact in the local blood supply for local patients,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. “We are experiencing our lowest blood supply levels in over 20 years. The need for blood is increasing as we see many elective procedures being scheduled throughout the area. Support your local blood supply by joining us and schedule a blood donation appointment online at www.cbblifeblood.org. Donating blood is a safe and essential action that can be done during the COVID-19 pandemic. Community Blood Bank follows strict guidelines provided by the FDA, CDC and the Association of Blood Banks to provide a safe, socially distanced and clean environment for donors.”

To schedule your appointment call 605-882-7750.
