blood donors ImpactLife

ImpactLife is “on call” for the week of June 24 as a member of the national Blood Emergency Readiness Corps (BERC) and is offering rewards for gift cards for donors.  

The blood center is seeking additional donations to support needs that may arise nationally and within our region. To schedule, call ImpactLife at (800) 747-5401. Or visit www.bloodcenter.org, or download the ImpactLife mobile app at www.bloodcenter.org/app

ImpactLife begins the week with just a two-day supply of type O-negative and a 2.5-day supply of type O-positive red blood cells. Platelet donations from all blood types are also greatly needed.

BERC is a network of community blood centers from across the nation. They are committed to preparing for mass transfusion emergencies. By collecting extra units on a rotating on-call schedule, BERC members establish a ready pool of blood. Those products can be tapped into during disasters, providing an invaluable safety net in times of crisis.

The donor promotions run through June 30. They are:

  • Whole blood donation (Donor Centers and mobile blood drives), $20 gift card, $20 donation OR 1,000 points.
  • Double red and plasma only donations, $25 gift card, $25 donation OR 1,500 points.
