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.
Kevin M. Snyder is a regular blood donor at the Unyts Neighborhood Blood Donation at the Southgate Plaza in West Seneca, and has been supporting Unyts through blood donation since 2011.
As a Vietnam War veteran Kevin understands the need for donating blood, and he first began donating for the troops serving in Desert Storm. He also underwent open heart surgery at Buffalo General Medical Center in 1999 and was comforted knowing that there was blood available if he was to need it.
Kevin wants the community to know that donated blood provides lifesaving help to others and allows your own body to re-generate in a natural cycle. He is committed in continuing to donate blood with Unyts because he knows that one day it may save someone’s life.
