Welcome to America's Blood Centers. It's About Life.
Update: Boston Explosions
America’s Blood Centers and its member blood centers express our condolences to the families, friends, and victims impacted by the explosions in Boston. At this time, all blood needs are able to be met locally.
While your blood donations may not be needed for victims in Boston at this time, we encourage you to contact your local blood center and schedule an appointment in memoriam of the wounded and those who lost their lives.
Please remember the importance of donating blood year-round and throughout the upcoming summer months to ensure that the blood supply of local hospitals remain stable.
