How many lives have been saved due to giving blood? We will never know, but the number is not as important as the fact that we do indeed save lives.

Announcing Online Appointments

CBC is proud to announce the launch of an online appointment Web site, Blood Donors can now make their own real-time appointments online for all public blood drives and CBC branch locations at Appointments for business blood drives and other closed to the public blood drives will still need to be scheduled by contacting the blood drive chairperson or by calling 1-800-388-GIVE.
