“Currently, Community Blood Bank is asking donors to keep donating blood as we are concerned with additional critical shortages in our area. We have seen very strong blood usage going into 2021, with surgeries being one of the leading usages at this time,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. “We foresee difficulties in maintaining a sold blood supply for our community in the next 3 to 6 months, as we battle critical blood shortages locally. There is really no outside assistance available from other blood banks, as we are all experiencing the same tragic shortages. If community members are serious about offering help during the pandemic, consider giving someone life by scheduling a time to give blood to Community Blood Bank, the only local blood provider.”
Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood. Please bring an ID with you at the time of donation.

Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our local blood donors.
