Please show your support for all patients in need of blood throughout Western New York by donating at the UNYTS Blood Drive at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo on Tuesday, September 26 from 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. in Alford Auditorium.

Why Donate?

  • All blood donated through UNYTS stays in WNY for local patients in need in our community.
  • UNYTS is the primary supplier of blood products for Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, helping moms, babies and children in our units every day.
  • Every week, between 20 and 30 blood donors are needed for babies at Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. Blood used for children is different than blood used for adult patients, which is why donating is so important!
  • One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
  • Donating blood with UNYTS takes less than an hour of your time from start to finish.
  • You do not have to use your break time to donate.
  • You get a free snack and drink.
  • You will receive a $6 cafeteria voucher.

You will be entered into the year-end drawing for one of three excellent prizes:

          - 50” Smart TV
          - 8GB iPad Mini
          - $500 Walden Galleria gift card

Donating blood is an easy way to give back to the community and it makes you feel great!
