It Feels Good to be a Hero
Donate Blood and help save someone’s life
Every three seconds someone needs blood. Thanks to those people who selflessly donate their blood – and time – a life is being saved.
Join LG Health’s Hero Club and become a member of this exclusive group of people who realize the importance of giving…the gift of life.
You won’t find the members of our Hero Club flying around in capes and leaping off buildings– they are just normal everyday people, who instantly become a hero in the eyes of an accident victim, surgery patient or a baby in the NICU after receiving a blood transfusion to survive.
At Lancaster General Health we rely on the generous contributions of dedicated people who voluntarily donate blood so our patients have access to a safe and adequate blood supply.
All the blood that is collected by LG Health stays in Lancaster County to benefit your family, neighbors and friends.
What do I need to do be a member of The Hero Club?
To be a member, you will commit to donating blood four times a year, at your convenience. That’s it!
How do I sign up?
All you need to do is complete and sign an enrollment card at the time of your first donation or fill out the form below:
To donate blood, you must be:
- 16 years or older (if under 18, you may donate with this signed parental consent form)
- A minimum of 110 lbs
- In good health (no cold, sore throat or flu symptom) with no recent major surgery
- No history of hepatitis
- No tattoos or body piercing within the last 12 months
Giving blood is simple and only takes about one hour!
Giving blood truly is giving the gift of life.
