Make an Appointment to Donate Blood in Rochester and Help Save 3 Lives!
Why donate blood? That’s easy – it helps save lives. In fact, each blood donation can help save up to 3 lives – a mother, a daughter, a brother, or a friend - and all blood collected at the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor center is used locally.
This blood shortage is a serious issue in our area and throughout our country and lives are depending on this blood. I even know some of those people and that's why a few months ago, I donated myself. I just had surgery but as soon as my body is able to donate, I'll be back in to give a little bit more.
