The UP Regional Blood Center is in critical need of blood donations of all types.

The crisis is, in part, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic from the lack of blood drives offered to the public. However, blood donation is considered an essential act and is safe to do at this time.

Blood is essential for health care and the need for blood is constant.

The UP Regional Blood Center encourages that all healthy, eligible donors consider donating during this time.
