Coffee Memorial Blood Center Launching Donor Hotline

Coffee Memorial Blood Center is launching a new hotline that will help encourage more people to discover whether they can donate blood products.

Donors will be able to ask confidential questions about their eligibility status, which could have changed due to recent criteria changes made by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The hotline will also address many common misconceptions about donor eligibility, including medication usage, international travel, vaccinations and more.

To access the hotline call 888-308-3924.

The local blood supply still remains very low and donors are needed now.

You can go to your blood institute dot org to schedule an appointment or call 806-331-8833.
