This group is for people interested in blood donation. Every six minutes, a patient at Mayo Clinic needs a transfusion of blood or blood products. A simple blood donation can save the life of a child with leukemia, restore the strength of a cancer patient, or provide a critical transfusion to an accident victim. There is no substitute for this lifesaving gift, so patients rely upon the caring spirit of blood donors. Join the discussion and learn more about blood donation!


We are doing blood drives once again within the community. If you wish to host a blood drive, please contact one of our marketing and recruitment coordinators. Please consider donating at one of our permanent locations by calling (507) 284-4475 to schedule an appointment.
