The blood supply in Delmarva has been crippled by Covid-19. While we work and learn from home, organizations and schools have been unable to support blood drives and encourage their workforce and students to make blood donations. Blood Bank of Delmarva is trying to keep pace with patient demand but needs immediate help from all eligible donors. The blood center is running community blood drives and also has multiple donor centers operating 7 days a week. All-State, Federal, and FDA guidelines are being strictly followed to ensure the safety of blood donors and the BBD staff. Nearly 350 donations are needed each day for Delmarva hospitals and the blood center is substantially short in donations necessary to maintain patient care.
Please strongly consider donating by finding a donation location near you.
You can schedule an appointment to donate blood anytime from Jan 23rd to Jan 30th Click Here. In the drop-down click on Charity Crossing and hit the submit button, you will then be directed to the appointment page. Or call 1.888.825.6638
Walk-ins will be accommodated if capacity permits.
