These appointments are limited and are first come, first served! Location: SunCoast Blood Centers, 3025 Lakewood Ranch Blvd, Bradenton, Fl 34211 Date and Time: Saturday, July 23, 9am-1pm Donating blood is always essential, but here are some key reasons to donate blood this summer: Schools are out for the summer, and school students and staff donations typically brought a large portion of our donations. We need people to donate to offset that decline in donors. During the Summer months the winter residents have gone back up north and are not able to donate here. We need more donors to make up the donors that left. Also, during the Summer months many people are traveling or on vacation and are not able to donate. Following the pandemic, it’s been a struggle to get our donor base back up to what it was pre-pandemic. So we need everyone to donate. You never know when someone you know will need blood, due to surgery, so you should get into a routine of donating.
