Our Donors Save Lives



Weekend Hours Are Back

Join us on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.

Walk-ins are welcome or schedule an appointment through the donor portal or by calling 814-456-4206.


Temporary Hours Change

Community Blood Bank is dedicated to providing our donors with an experience that is quick and simple! Over the past 18 months, CBB has been working to implement a new, upgraded computer system to replace our current 20-year-old system. Please note that Friday, March 24th the Erie Donor Center will be closing early at 12:00 PM for staff training for the implementation of the new system.
The upgrade will significantly increase efficiencies throughout our operations and give donors an opportunity to fill out their Donor History Card at home before coming in to donate blood (on the same day as your visit). We appreciate your patience as we prepare to make a change and are excited to share more about the project in the next few weeks!


 March Donor Promotion

All donors in the month of March receive automatic entry for the chance to win two (2) MLB tickets of their choosing. One lucky donor will be randomly drawn after the promotional period ends and contacted by Community Blood Bank. The promotional period begins Wednesday, March 1st at 7:00 am and ends Friday, March 31st, at 10:00 pm. This promotion is valued at a maximum of $300.00.

Become a Volunteer

Save lives with your time as a Community Blood Bank Volunteer! CBB is implementing two new volunteer programs where YOU can help us save lives. Volunteers can participate at the Erie Donor Center and all Community Blood Bank drives in the regions we serve.


General Volunteer Roles Include:

- Talking to donors about their blood donations.

-Assisting donors with scheduling follow-up donations.

-Communicating the importance of continued blood donations.

-Helping donors access their accounts and the point store.


Volunteer Telerecruiters:

Community Blood Bank is looking for outgoing and personable individuals to assist us in calling blood donors.

Help us make a difference in the lives of others by reaching out to blood donors for:

-Critical needs

-Blood drives

Appointment reminders

-Thank yous

One of the most common reasons people don't donate blood is that they were never asked. With your help, we can invite the community to save lives every day.

Mask Policy

Community Blood Bank encourages but does not require everyone to wear a face mask. Anyone experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 or another contagious disease should not enter Community Blood Bank's building or any blood drive location. 

*Community Blood Bank reserves the right to change this policy at any time, without notice.


Vaccine Notice

If you have received the COVID-19 vaccine or a booster, there is no deferral to donate as long as you are not experiencing any symptoms.

If you are experiencing symptoms, you have to wait 14 days to donate.

Need a Good Reason to Give Today?

“Community Blood Bank donors give blood less than 2 times per year on average. If all donors give blood just ONE MORE time, there would not be a blood shortage for the local hospitals. That’s ONE MORE half hour of your entire year to help save more local lives.”

Thank you for being a part
of the Community Blood Bank family!
