Cincinnati Eastside Rotary recently welcomed Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth Blood Center, to a virtual luncheon meeting.

Hoxworth Blood Center indicates we are in the midst of a national blood shortage brought on by the outbreak of COVID19 (coronavirus).  All eligible blood donors are encouraged to schedule a donation at their earliest convenience.  As a reminder, blood donation is a safe, sterile process and there is no risk of contracting the virus by donating blood.  

You have a unique power running through your veins—the power to save lives, right here in our community. Will you help?

Why Donate Blood?

  • You can save a life close to home. Hoxworth serves more than 30 hospitals in the Tri-State, so your donation could change the life of someone in your community.
  • One donation can save up to three lives. By separating blood into components, you can help multiple people with your red cells, platelets, and plasma.
  • Pay it forward. Every five minutes, someone in the Tri-State area needs blood. You never know when you, a family member, a neighbor, or friend will need an emergency blood transfusion.
  • An hour of your time could give someone a lifetime. A whole blood donation usually takes less than an hour —and only 10 minutes of that is spent in the donation chair!
