Martin Luther King Jr. Day is more than a day off. It’s a day to reflect on the need for racial equality and to celebrate Dr. King’s humanitarian impact. In the spirit of service, you can give back to your local community by donating blood and hosting blood drives today and throughout the year.
 
Taking action to save lives through blood donation strengthens communities, bridges barriers and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “beloved community.” The gift of blood bands us together. Please consider joining us at an upcoming blood drive in your community. Appointments are needed to best manage social distancing.

Noon to 5 p.m.
