Central Blood Bank


Blood donations from our generous volunteer blood donors enable us to support life in the communities we serve.  We understand that not everyone is eligible or able to donate blood, and that even our most loyal donors have a limit to the number of times they can donate.

By accepting charitable contributions, Central Blood Bank offers the members of the community who are unable to donate, or our loyal donors who want to do more, the opportunity to help support life through donation of a charitable contribution.

Central Blood Bank is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All financial gifts are tax deductible.
