Giving Blood Saves Lives
Every time you donate blood, you're making a difference.
Shepeard Community Blood Center
An Important Message From The Surgeon General and Shepeard
Shepeard Community Blood Center is still open and taking blood donations. Your donations are so important for our hospitals and local blood supply.
Donor safety is important to us; therefore, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are following CDC and FDA guidelines on social distancing and sanitization. We encourage all donors at the centers and mobiles to make an appointment to donate, and to use our QuickPass screening option to save time and limit resource sharing. With these measures in place, donating blood is safe.
As always, Shepeard practices universal precautions when it comes to sanitization and cleanliness. We are still adhering to those everyday high standards.
Thank you for your support and patience during this time.
Shepeard Community Blood Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit blood center. Our mission is to collect, process, and distribute blood and blood products. We are the provider for over 20 hospitals in 30 counties across the two-state area.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person - the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components - red cells, platelets and plasma - which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
