Donate Blood In Honor Of Juneteenth!

Donate Blood In Honor Of Juneteenth!

Wednesday, 01 - Thursday, 30 June, 2022

From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond.  Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement.

Donate blood this June in honor of Juneteenth,
and help to diversify our community’s blood supply! 

Like the color of your eyes and hair, blood type is also inherited! For example, African-Americans and other minority groups may have rare blood types that are specific to their race, ethnicity or genetic background. The best blood type match for patients with rare blood types often comes from donors of a similar race or ethnicity. By diversifying the blood supply, we can instill hope and save more lives!  To learn more about the importance of diversifying the blood supply, click here.

  • Locations:   MKBC Pittston Donor Center, 4oo Route 315, Suite E

Be sure to include Group ID# 8838 in the “notes” section when you register!


If business or time constraints are too challenging for your organization to run an on-site bloodmobile drive,
MKBC’s Adopt-A-Day program offers partnering organizations the flexibility of enabling employees, family and friends
to host a blood drive at one of our Donor Centers and be recognized in the community!
