Please join us: Wednesday, December 28th from 10:30am to 1:00pm at the Sheridan County Public Health Building on the Blood Mobile.

You may schedule your donation appointment by clicking on this link to find the drive schedule.  Or, contact United Blood Services at 406-248-9168 and let us know when you’re available to donate and we can schedule the appointment for you.

Special request: If your blood type is O-negative, please consider donating at this drive.  Always needed, O-negative is the universal blood type, which means it can be given to patients of any type in an emergency when there’s no time to type and cross match the patient’s blood.

Thank you for giving blood and saving lives!
