PENSACOLA— All OneBlood Donor Centers will be hosting special holiday blood drives through April 21 at the donor center locations.

All donors will receive a ‘Keep Calm & Donate Blood’ T-shirt, a $10 eGift card, and a wellness checkup of blood pressure, temperature and iron count, including a cholesterol screening. 

For the locations and hours of all OneBlood Donor Centers please visit oneblood.org/Locations or call any of these phone numbers during business hours.

•850-473-3858 in Pensacola, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach or Panama City.

•850-877-7181 in Tallahassee or Marianna.

Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org.

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused into a patient within two to three days.  The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
