Downtown Lincoln Blood Drive

|Nebraska Community Blood Bank is offering donors a chance to win a $100 Casey’s gas card! All presenting donors in July are automatically entered to win one of six $100 Casey’s gas cards. Visit NCBB.ORG/DRIVE for more information.Donors are urgently needed due to a critical shortage of all blood types. This shortage is anticipated to continue over the Fourth of July holiday.
It is challenging to get enough blood donors during the summer months, when schools are out of session, families take vacation, and donors are enjoying the weather. The fourth of July holiday results in many donors missing their regular appointments or being unavailable to donate. However, the need for blood doesn’t take a summer vacation, and Nebraska Community Blood Bank needs over 1,000 donors to step up every week to maintain a steady blood supply for local hospitals.
