Blood Bank of Alaska | Helping Alaska Patients in Need
Blood Bank of Alaska has decked our halls for the holiday season. During the holidays the need often increases for blood. We would love to see you this holiday season, if you have the time to donate for patients in need. Thank you for supporting Alaska. To schedule 222-5630 or click Donor Connection and schedule online.
Donor cards are no longer valid as a means of identification for registration. The new system launched on September 15, 2014 assigned new donor identification numbers to all donors. Due to this new number the old donor cards are invalid. Please bring a driver's license or other form of picture identification when you arrive to donate blood at our centers and mobile drives. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Our new automated system is now up and running. Sue Shaffer was kind enough to be the first donor to go through the new registration process. Donors like Sue are the reason we are able to serve the patients of Alaska. Sue is a frequent platelet donor and we hope this will make her experience at Blood Bank of Alaska a little easier. Click the Donor Connection icon in the top right hand of the screen to schedule your appointment using the new system today or call 222-5630.

It is here! Starting September 15 donors can now make appointments in real time for whole blood online. In addition this new connection will allow you to view your past donation history, hero rewards, wellness and more! You will use the login button on the homepage of the website beginning September 15.
Blood Bank of Alaska is so excited that on Monday April 7, 2014 the construction began at our new building site. The new facility is scheduled to be completed in 2015 and we are still raising funds for this effort. This building will provide Alaska with a safe blood supply in times of disaster and bring an additional state-of-the-art laboratory to our community. Click Read more to view a slide show.
