“TBC is very appreciative that Outback has hopped on board with us. To have a popular nationwide brand embrace what we do is monumental to the communities TBC serves. Outback is helping us spread the word about our life-giving mission, which means we are going to touch the lives of many hospital patients, together,” said TBC President and CEO, Delisa K. English.

Outback promotion at the centers will be held on 08/01, 08/08, 08/15, 08/22, 08/29. 

When donors give local with The Blood Connection, it stays local. TBC is the primary blood provider for local hospitals, which means when anyone there needs blood, TBC supplies it. While trauma is the most obvious reason for blood usage, cancer patients are usually the number one recipients of blood products. Donations are also needed for burn victims, premature infants, surgeries, and those with blood disorders, to name a few. When community members share blood, healing happens, and families remain whole. 

Blood donors must be healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years old or 16 with written parental consent. Our centers are open Monday-Friday 7am-7pm and Saturday-Sunday 7am-5pm. Click here to make an appointment or to call a specific center.
