We’ve seen the health crisis bring out the best of us. This is evidenced by all of our local blood donors who have stepped up to donate with the help of our previous campaign. However, this is a race without a finish line. Not only is there an ongoing need for blood, but even more so for our local blood supply, which has been drastically impacted by the effects of COVID-19.

ConnectLife is the only local blood center that keeps every single drop in Western New York, serving one of every seven people in area hospitals. With supply drastically low and blood drives being canceled, hospitals are in critical need of a steady supply. Listen to this message from ConnectLife’s President, Mark Simon, as he speaks to the local need on a recent broadcast radio spot that FARM developed.

If you’re looking for ways to give back to our community, there’s no greater gift than saving lives. Please consider safely donating blood or scheduling a small blood drive at ConnectLife.org/urgent.
