“Spring is here and so is the cold and flu season. Community Blood Bank has been struggling to maintain a strong blood supply due to so many people that are experiencing either colds or flus and just not feeling well,” said Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank. 

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form found at, weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good health.  

“It is ever more important for those that are well and health to consider donating blood and provide hope to local patients in need. Among those who benefit from donated blood are trauma, burn victims, cancer patients, and persons undergoing surgery,” said Versteeg. “You can donate blood every 56 days and provide hope to local patients in need. The best news is that your donation will stay local for local use.” 

Please bring an I.D. the day  you donate. It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluid prior to donating.  For more information log onto or call Community Blood Bank at (605) 331-3222.
