Dedicated blood donors continue to age

The future of our blood supply is in our schools. As the current pool of dedicated blood donors continue to age, our community relies on younger generations to commit and give blood regularly. As a service to schools in our region, Miller-Keystone Blood Center provides a variety of educational and promotional tools to inspire and reward a new generation of blood donors.
