Blood drive art 0616

The YMCAs of the Tampa Bay are working together with OneBlood and LifeSouth to address the ongoing need for blood donations. This is just one of the ways the Y is working with community partners to meet critical needs during these challenging times. So far, donors have donated enough blood at local YMCAs to positively impact 1,182 lives. 

The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, YMCA of the Suncoast and YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg have partnered with OneBlood and LifeSouth to host 20 additional donation drives at the YMCA locations across Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties to ensure ready blood supply for the community.

All donors with OneBlood at Tampa-area YMCA locations from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, July 24, will receive a free COVID-19 antibody test, free tote bag and free wellness checkup which includes a blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening. To make an appointment, visit //oneblood.org/ymca or call 888-936-6283.

All donors with LifeSouth at Citrus and Hernando counties YMCA locations from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, July 24, will receive a free COVID-19 antibody test, free t-shirt and coupon for a free Domino’s pizza.
