Immediate Community Needs

Below are some immediate local needs due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please take a look and consider supporting them however you can!

Blood Donations

LifeServe Blood Center is currently accepting appointments for blood donations. Only blood donors with appointments will be able to give blood. To ensure appropriate donor flow and social distancing standards can be maintained, we are not currently allowing walk-in donations. Please schedule an appointment if you’re interested in giving blood in the coming weeks. Appointments can be made by calling call 800-287-4903 or visiting

Community blood centers are a critical part in maintaining a stable blood supply in the weeks ahead and we are excited local donors will help ensure that hospitals like Mary Greeley are supplied with the blood products that they need.

Face Masks for Healthcare Workers

Clean Indeed is fundraising to provide front line healthcare workers with 50,000 N95 respirator face masks. Learn more or donate here.
