The Community Blood Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York connects donors to patients who are in need of life-sustaining blood products in the communities we serve.

Current Needs for Double-Red Donations:

As our inventory needs change, so does our need for individual blood components (the platelets, plasma and red cells you donate). Please refer to this section for current needs and appointment guidance.

At this time, we ask A+ donors to schedule whole blood appointments due to the need for the platelet and plasma portion of your blood, which can only be taken from a whole blood donation that contains all three components of blood: red blood cells, plasma & platelets.

At this time, we ask A-, B-, & O+ donors to schedule double-red appointments if possible. We are especially encouraging O- donors to schedule double-red appointments if possible due to the need for your universal red cells.
