ConnectLife has seen a tremendous response from our WNY community after our call for blood donors, but our work is not over. Collecting blood is a marathon, not a sprint. Blood donors are needed to consistently give now and in the future.
Remember the words of the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams: "Social distancing does not mean social disengagement."
We will be taking appointments ONLY, for the foreseeable future. Even if you can't find an appointment right now - local patients at WNY hospitals will still need you in the coming weeks. Click here to schedule your appointment to donate blood – appointments available throughout April and May.
Important Update: ConnectLife's Eastern Hills Blood Donation Center is moving to ConnectLife headquarters - effective immediately. We are continuing to monitor the outbreak of COVID-19. Information and resources on COVID-19, blood donation, and social distancing can be found here.
Park Creek Senior Living Community has been hosting Unyts blood drives every year since 2011. Since 2013, Theresa "Peggy" Winiham has been looking forward to participating in those drives.
"When Unyts stops in, I know that making an appointment to donate is just the right thing to do," Peggy explained.
This year, Peggy celebrates her 96 birthday and believes that if you are healthy enough to keep giving then you should make an appointment to donate today. "It's pretty simple, I have something that can help people; that people need so I make the appointment."
