Bleed Blue with the Buffalo Bills

AFC East Division Champs, the Buffalo Bills, are urging all of their fans to show as much passion for blood donation as they do for the team during their push for the playoffs. Through January 3rd, the first one thousand donors at a ConnectLife Neighborhood Donation Center will receive an exclusive lawn sign to display their love for the Bills and their support for WNY’s hometown blood team.


The holidays are generally a time when fewer people give blood, but the need for blood remains constant. Between Christmas and New Year’s ConnectLife will need a strong showing from the community to ensure local patients in local hospitals have the blood they need. ConnectLife is the primary supplier of blood for Kaleida Health, ECMC, Eastern Niagara Health, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, Bradford Regional Medical Center, Brooks Hospital System, Olean General Hospital and Wyoming County Community Health System.

Roll up your sleeves and bleed blue for ConnectLife! ConnectLife Neighborhood Blood Donation Centers are located in West Seneca at the Southgate Plaza, Tonawanda at 96 Niagara Street and in Williamsville at 4444 Bryant & Stratton Way. To make an appointment to donate please visit or call 716.529.4270. Make sure to wear your Bills gear when donating!
