Donating blood is a simple thing to do that takes less than an hour. Just think, potentially saving the lives of up to 3 people takes less time than it takes to watch a television show.
There are 4 easy steps to blood donation.
- Registration: Photo ID must be presented prior to donation to identify you at every donation.
- Interview: To determine if you are all right to donate we will ask questions about health, travel and medicines.
- Mini-physical: Take your blood pressure, temperature and pulse. Take a small blood sample to make sure you are not anemic.
- Phlebotomy: Blood donation takes 5-15 minutes.

Donor Rewards Program
ConnectLife blood donors can earn points in addition to saving lives. ConnectLife created the rewards program, not only as a thank you, but as a way to instill the important habit of blood donation and giving back to our community. Because blood cannot be manufacturing in a lab, it is critical that ConnectLife finds new donors and keep them coming back.
ConnectLife’s donor rewards program operates on a points-per-donation basis. Donors will receive points for each donation based on type (whole blood, platelet, or double red cell).
