Buffalo Bills Blood Donor Rally for ConnectLife

Help our hometown blood team stock the shelves! There is currently a critical shortage of blood for local hospitals and the Buffalo Bills and ConnectLife are urging the community to rally and help save lives.

All donors at a ConnectLife blood drive Saturday 10/10, Monday 10/12 and Tuesday 10/13 will be entered to win an exclusive Buffalo Bills fan package, including:

  • Autographed helmet
  • Autographed football
  • One Buffalo long sleeve tee
  • BOSE noise-cancelling headphones, and other fun items!

One winner selected each day, and announced on Wednesday 10/14.

ConnectLife has less than a three-day supply of blood available for patients in need. Due to recent traumas and an increase in demand at local hospitals, a strong turnout by donors is vital to ensure a safe blood supply. As WNY’s only community blood bank it is our responsibility to answer the call for blood products to ANY hospital in need, but we need help from blood donors to do that.

Be a part of our lifesaving team! To find a blood drive near you visit ConnectLifeGiveBlood.org or call 716.529.4270. Make sure to wear your Bills gear when donating!
