Why Donate Blood

While 1 in 7 hospitalized people will need a blood transfusion in a lifetime, only 1 in 20 eligible blood donors actually donate. Remember, there's no replacement for blood—your donation saves lives.

Save time while you prepare to save lives.

CFL Express Pass allows donors to fill out screening questions  before they arrive for their blood donation. Complete the CFL Express Pass at home and print out the resulting barcodes. Staff will scan it to retrieve your data.
