The blood supply collected from the donors here in Citrus County directly serves the needs of patients in this community. As a blood donor, you are helping save the lives of patients in Citrus County.

To give blood you must be 17 years old or older, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and show a valid photo I.D. There are instances that may prevent you from donating, check the website to be sure you qualify. The health benefits are obvious for the patients receiving the donations, but what are the donors getting in return? It is a lot more than just a good deed. You get to save a life or many lives, and that feels good.
