Donate Blood

  • Find a donation site or drive near you at the Blood Connection or Red Cross.
  • Blood donations are always needed, especially in the aftermath of a tragic event. 
  • The blood supply remains stable at North Carolina hospitals, but agencies must maintain a steady flow of donations because blood and platelets can’t be frozen or stockpiled and demand seldom lets up.
