(Fort Collins, Colo.) – Did you know that every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood? It’s needed for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.

Columbine Health Systems has partnered with Garth Englund Blood Center to make it easy and convenient to donate blood for those in need in our community. The Spring Blood Drive is scheduled for Monday, March 25 at the Drake Center, 802 W. Drake Road in Fort Collins from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Blood donations help supply Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, Greeley Hospital and Longs Peak Hospital.

Walk-ins are welcome; however, appointments are strongly recommended and can be made here. The donation process takes 30 to 45 minutes. Donors are advised to eat a good meal before their appointment. Masks are optional.
