Immediate Local Needs

Help us mitigate immediate local needs due to the COVID-19 crisis. Below are a few ways you can help our community! 

Blood Donations

Maintaining a stable blood supply in the weeks and months ahead is critical to our community’s healthcare. LifeServe Blood Center is currently accepting donations by appointment. 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

United Way of Story County is looking for approximately 500 water bottles to donate to our school districts as they prepare to return to school.
