Thank you to every blood donor who took the time to donate in the wake of the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. Thousands of people packed our donor centers and blood drives eager to donate and help replenish the blood supply. Your immediate response to help patients in need was unprecedented and remarkable.
We also want to thank all the people who showed up at our locations with food and water for donors and OneBlood team members. Your generosity and support is very much appreciated.
You never know when blood will be needed and it is why having a ready blood supply is so vital to our community. Blood donations are needed every day and we encourage people to continue to visit our donor centers and Big Red Bus® blood drives in the coming days. Due to the amazing response there may be a wait at some of our locations, so please be patient. We encourage you to schedule an appointment during an available time slot (Please note: due to the large outpouring of support, some of our locations are currently booking appointments several days in advance.).

From everyone at OneBlood we thank you and appreciate your support of our lifesaving mission.
