January is National Blood Donor Month—can you help make a difference?
There is an urgent need for blood donations. The nation faces the lowest number of people giving blood in 20 years. Your support is needed now to help alleviate the shortage and ensure lifesaving medical procedures are not delayed. We need your help!
This shortage comes during National Blood Donor Month, celebrated each year since 1970 to honor those who give the gift of life during a historically difficult time to meet the blood needs of patients. Thank you for continuing to do your part to help ensure all those suffering receive critical medical care.
Time spent donating blood, including travel time, is paid per the Volunteer Paid Time Off Policy. Please be sure to log your time for this activity in Workday.
