We’re all taking precautions right now, to save lives. Giving blood is essential to saving lives, too. That’s why donating blood is considered safe and an essential service during any outbreak. The Central California Blood Centers are open and taking every safety measure possible. Your life and those of your family and friends depend on blood, and our supplies are critically short. If you are healthy, get to a Central California Blood Center now or go to donateblood.org to make an appointment.
