National Blood Donor Month: January 2023


Saving lives one drop at a time…

In 1969, a proclamation was signed designating January as National Blood Donor Month, a time to recognize and spread awareness of the need for blood and platelets. National Blood Donor Month (NBDM) also celebrates the lifesaving impact of those who regularly donate, and encourages new donors to give blood as a New Year’s Resolution. This year, America’s Blood Centers, the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies, and the American Red Cross are joining together to thank America’s more than 7 million blood donors. The winter months are one of the most difficult times to collect lifesaving blood, so make it your resolution to schedule a donation appointment! Make an appointment here

“January is named after the Roman god, Janus. He had two faces so he could see the future and the past.”
