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.


All blood types are urgently needed, please donate as soon as you are eligible!

Monday, July 27 through Thursday July 30 our fixed site in Erie will be open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. as our blood shortage continues. Please donate as soon as you are eligible. Our local hospitals are relying on our donors, please help spread the word!


Earn Bonus Points for Your Donation!

Our 1,000 point promotion, which began on May 14th, continues through September 19th. After your second whole blood donation, first double red cell donation, or fourth platelet donation, you will received 1,000 points to our point store which can be redeemed for a $10 gift card or any of our other prizes!


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.



Don’t forget to check out our news feed, located on the left hand side of our website, to stay up to date on our promotions, new blood drives, schedule changes and much more!
