Douglas County Libraries has formed a “partnership for life” with Bonfils Blood Center and will be holding blood drives throughout the year. Bonfils needs 4,200 blood donations weekly to meet the needs of the community and to be prepared for unexpected events.
Blood Donation is one of the easiest ways to help your community, with each whole blood donation lasting less than an hour and having the potential to help several people.
Reservations are handled through Bonfils. Call 303-363-2300 to book your spot.
