The Blood Connection and The Outer Banks Hospital are partnering to host a community blood drive at the Outer Banks Family YMCA on April 4th from 10:00am to 3:00pm. In order to prevent shortages during the COVID-19 outbreak, we urge healthy and eligible individuals who are feeling well to donate blood. This blood drive will adhere to both CDC and local health department guidelines, and participants will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the donation location.  Blood donated at The Blood Connection blood drive will stay local to benefit residents of the Outer Banks community. If you have questions, call (252) 449-4529. Walk ins are welcome, but you can register to donate by clicking here.
