ConnectLife Blood Donor Testimonials

"I just want to say my first time giving blood (years ago) was the most painful excruciating experience. It took me until today at the Cattaraugus County Building with ConnectLife's Jillian to have a phenomenal experience. Because of her, I will donate again!! Thank you!❤️" - Angela L., April 2021

“As always the staff is top notch! Friendly, professional and painless! February is my birthday, my niece, and my sister- we are all days apart but different years- they had to copy me! Lol - we always go together and give blood. This time they all sang happy birthday and gave us a cookie and brownie cake! We will continue to donate!” – Michelle M., February 2021

“Lindsay is the best. She makes even the most squeamish person feel ok about giving blood. Stop in and save lives, all the blood goes local too.” – Thomas F., January 2021

“Today was my first-time donating blood. I had a 12:30 appointment, and the staff was ready for me. Dominique took care of me from start to finish. She was awesome! Very friendly and professional. I filled out some forms then went to the chair. Dominique did a great job inserting the needle, I hardly felt a thing. It only took a few minutes, and I was done by 1:10. I will continue to donate blood, so I can help someone out who might need it.” – Sandy Z., September 2020

“Donating blood is your civic duty, and your responsibility to your neighbors. I give blood regularly, and really wish this was something that everyone did. There would be no shortages if everyone donated. The location is convenient, the hours are great, and they accept walk-ins. They are friendly, the place is clean, and they are incredibly accommodating. They have blankets for you, and the TV is on, and they have a ton of snacks and let you have as many of anything they have. I have never had a bad experience from them trying to find a vein- they do it perfectly every time. I tried to donate platelets once, but my blood was clotting too quickly, and it did not work out. They did their best and made me comfortable- but when it was not working, and started to hurt, they quickly abandoned the procedure, and made sure I was OK. After that, I went back to donating regular whole blood. They are always thankful, always friendly, and it is a joy to go donate there. I urge everyone to go donate blood if they are able to!” – Lara M., March 2019

"Was a wonderful experience. Everyone was kind and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was great. My son went and donated for his first time and again everyone went above and beyond to make sure his first donation was seamless." - Jessica B., May 2021

"Everyone was kind and patient. I was nervous, but they were fantastic and it was an easy quick process. Thanks to the staff! They were amazing." – Heather G.

"I love the fact your blood donation stays in the community. That’s why I donate." – Renee M.

"I know the need is always great and urgent for people who need it, so donating platelets as often as my schedule allows makes me feel good. I like to put good out there in the world, which is needed now even more than usual in these stressful uncertain times of the pandemic." – Donna C.

"Super quick and friendly service! looooved my phlebotomist. Everyone on the bus was wonderful!" – Rebecca D.
