Plan to donate blood at EPH on Aug. 7

Flyer for a blood drive at Garth Englund Blood Center hosted by Estes Park Health on August 7th, 2024, from 9 AM to 3 PM. Includes QR code for appointments and registration instructions. Walk-ins welcome.

The next on-site blood drive at Estes Park Health is on Wednesday, August 7, 2024. We’ve expanded our hours to accommodate more donors. The team from UCHealth Garth Englund Blood Center will be drawing whole blood donations from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Blood donation is extremely important in the summer. Appointments to donate often drop because school is out, and many people take family vacation. The need for blood, however, doesn’t change. Donations are crucial since there is no substitute for human blood. These donations will help patients facing surgeries, cancer treatments, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries.

Walk-ins are welcome, but you can also sign up in advance at Donor Portal – UCHealth Garth Englund Blood Center. Your blood supports patients at Estes Park Health, as well as other hospitals in Northern Colorado.

To donate blood, you must be at least 18 years old (or 17 with a parent’s permission) and show photo identification. New blood donors must weigh at least 120 pounds and be in good health. Prior donors must weigh at least 110 pounds with no complications during previous donations and feel well and healthy.
