Since 1955, the Community Blood Center (CBC) has been helping connect lives; share life. As the sole provider of blood, platelets, and plasma to nearly 30 hospitals throughout the midwest, CBC relies on volunteer blood donors to meet the transfusion needs of the hospitals it supports. Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. You can join CBC on its lifesaving mission by donating blood at a location near you. Visit communityblood.org to learn more.
