Each month, UMMC holds an open blood drive so that you can support our medical community.

There are many reasons to give--someone in the U.S. needs blood every two seconds and one donation can save up to three lives — but really, it is the right thing to do, and you will walk a little taller each time you donate.

At UMMC, we use more than 36,000 units of blood a year. Every blood drive is greatly needed.

Check out the information below, then reserve a time for the next drive and bring a friend. All UMMC employees receive 1,250 Positive Points, part of our new Reward and Recognition Program, for donating. Email Katey Leiter at kleiter@umm.edu with any questions.
