Nebraska Community Blood Bank: 50 Years of Dedicated Donors
Each time someone donates blood at Nebraska Community Blood Bank (NCBB), they are making an impact in the lives of those in our community – a service NCBB has expertly delivered for 50 years. As NCBB celebrates this exciting milestone throughout 2018, it serves as an opportunity to thank, remember, and encourage the people who’ve helped achieve this half century of success: blood donors.
Each January, NCBB acknowledges the lifesaving contribution blood and platelet donors make by celebrating National Blood Donor Month. While many are welcoming another year, NCBB is saying thank you for your generous donations that will give others more time to experience life with their family and friends.
Technology advances at great speed, but scientists have yet to discover a way to synthetically create blood – it remains one of the most precious resources that can only be given by a person. As a donor with NCBB, you are vital to helping carry out their lifesaving mission.
Help NCBB continue this work by telling others why you choose to help save lives. Challenge yourself this year to ask a friend, family member, or co-worker to give blood donation a try, or share your story of how blood donation has impacted your life on social media. Appointments can be scheduled at NCBB.ORG or by calling (402) 486-9414.
