Join in the fun as Avera Care Flight and Sanford AirMed compete to gain the most blood donors for our community’s blood supply. Great things are happening in Sioux Falls as we continue to see growth in business, population, and the demand for medical services. We need your help to improve our community’s blood supply and maintain a safe inventory of blood while the need for blood donations grows with the population.

The 2nd Annual Flying for Life blood drive competition was developed to create awareness as to the need for blood donations. Our flight teams are true community heroes, requiring a readily available blood supply to treat seriously ill patients at the site of a tragedy, trauma, or emergency event. These teams carry 6 – 8 units of blood with them at all times to provide a lifesaving transfusion immediately when lives are at risk. Community Blood Bank is asking you to join in to support our team lifesavers and donate blood to keep our supplies strong. You can choose from a variety of different community blood drive events by selecting the link next to the sponsor (above), then select the best time that will work for you. We also offer multiple times to give blood at our donor rooms located at Sanford USD Medical Center (main hospital lobby) or Avera McKennan Hospital (Plaza 2, 4th floor / with donor parking in front of the building).
