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.

Autumn Hubler has seen the true impact that blood donors can have on a family. Her own sister needed platelets when she was in the hospital struggling with leukemia. Those platelets help save her sister's life.
She is proud to say that she chooses to donate blood in order to help people who deserve life and need the blood donations in order to keep living. She started donating blood through blood drives at her school back in 2015, and she has been a regular donor ever since. And she plans to keep it that way!
Autumn believes the best part about donating is knowing that it helps people get to spend more time with their families and live a healthier life. “The staff at Unyts makes you feel so comfortable; there’s no such thing as a stupid question about what’s going on!” says Autumn.
