The life-saving community blood supply needs to be there everyone 24/7, 365 day a year. It can only come from one human being to another. At any moment, it could be you, a friend, or family member who needs blood.

NBC 10 is challenging you to roll up your sleeves and save lives this summer to prevent major blood shortages. Over the last 40 years, NBC 10 has helped inspire over 17,000 blood donations. Since one donation can help three people, our dedicated viewers have helped save as many as 52,000 lives throughout Southern New England and beyond.
