Blood Bank of Alaska is dedicated to serving the Alaska community by providing safe, pure and potent blood products and laboratory services while meeting changing health care needs. We help Alaska patients in need.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Blood Bank of Alaska was founded by Alaskans to serve others in the community by ensuring that every hospital and medical center in the state has a safe and adequate supply of blood at all times. We are the only blood collection service in the state, and a critical foundation for Alaska’s healthcare. Did you know that every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs blood, or that 1 in every 3 people will need blood at some point in their lifetime? Blood and blood products are required not just for trauma, but also for routine and elective surgery, for cancer treatment, and for new and evolving therapies in all fields of medicine. As our population in Alaska grows, so too does the need for blood, blood testing, and blood processing services.
Your Pick.Click.Give. donation makes a difference in many ways. It provides much needed funds to purchase supplies like the bags we use to collect blood, equipment like the centrifuges we use to separate blood products, training for our staff, and furniture and snacks to ensure our blood donors have a positive recovery experience after donating.
Every gift makes a difference and helps Blood Bank of Alaska meet the increasing demand for blood and specialty blood products, improve the safety and efficiency of our operations, and expand our services to better serve Alaskans. Together we are saving lives.
