PNC and Central Blood Bank – A Lifesaving Partnership
PNC makes it easy to Save Lives by partnering with Central Blood Bank to offer convenient, quarterly workplace blood drives at multiple locations in Pittsburgh throughout the year. PNC friends and family are also encouraged to donate using the group code B036. They can donate at any location. Scott Urban’s daughters, Taylor and Jennifer (pictured above) donated at Central Blood Bank’s recent Pittsburgh Penguins Gameday Blood Drive.
Make lifesaving a habit
Blood drives are scheduled four times a year – in January, April, July and October. Resolve to donate at least once this year, and give as many times as possible to provide strength hope and courage to local patients who depend on the generosity of others to feel well. Each donation can save up to three lives.
Give where you live
Branch employees and others who cannot attend workplace blood drives are encouraged to give blood on behalf of PNC at CBB community donor centers and other fixed sites. Your friends and family can apply their donations to the PNC blood drive program by asking the Blood Bank to do so at the time of giving.
Regardless of where you participate, the CBB Donor Rewards program offers “more rewards the more you give” including bonus points for making and keeping an online appointment. Donors must enroll to participate.
Make an appointment online
Visit the CBB website Make an Appointment page and follow the prompts to log in. Scroll to the bottom of the “By location” page and enter the group code for the workplace blood drive of your choice. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are always preferred to ensure efficient donor processing.

The process to donate blood takes about an hour. It is safe and comfortable for the donor.
- Registration: Upon arrival, donors must sign-in, present proof of identification and complete a health history questionnaire.
Save time: Use the Donor Pass to complete the questionnaire from your desk on the day you donate.
Go paperless: Use your Smartphone! After completing the health history questionnaire, enter your email address and CBB will send you the completed questionnaire. When you arrive to donate, open the attachment in the email on your Smartphone and CBB staff will scan the information. If you misplace the email, you will have to retake the health history questionnaire before donating.
- Medical interview perks: A donor specialist will review the questionnaire, and you will be given a mini-physical and the ability to track wellness information. It’s a free and easy way to help you live well. You must complete the interview process to qualify for donor appreciation items.
- Donation: The donor specialist will prepare and cleanse your arm for donation; a 10 minute process.
- Refreshments: After donating, relax in the canteen for 15 minutes while enjoying a beverage and snack before returning to work.
