Image for Cape Fear Valley Blood Donor CenterStudents and their Family Members can come by the Blood Donor Center at 3357 Village Drive, Suite 150, Fayetteville NC 28304 to donate for your High Schools between now and May 15 to count towards your blood drives this year. They can also donate during the summer months to count for next year’s blood drives. Tell the students to put their school’s initials by their name on the sign-up sheet for my records. I have attached an e-flyer for all to use on the web and share on their school’s social media. Most of our blood drives have been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We need the help from every able donor in our community to maintain a safe, adequate blood supply to save lives locally. Remember, blood only last 42 days. All blood banks are already experiencing shortages and we expect these shortages to last a while. Meaning, if we don’t have it; we might not be able to order it.

On another note: We are trying to be proactive and prevent shortages while demands are high. I am reaching out today to ask for donations of any extra supplies you might have in your classrooms. We are trying to be proactive and prevent shortages while demands are high.
