It only takes an hour to give the gift of a lifetime. Each day hospital patients throughout Northern and Central California need more than 700 pints of blood. In fact, every two minutes a patient receives a blood transfusion provided by the generous donors at BloodSource.

Donating blood is a safe and simple four-step process that includes registration, a medical history interview, the actual blood donation and refreshments. Blood donors need to be in generally good health, at least 17 years of age or 16 with parental consent, and weigh at least 110 pounds. There is no upper age limit for donating blood. Prospective donors must bring a photo ID.
