National Blood Donation Week (NBDW) unites states across the US to support their local blood banks and their tireless effort to keep blood supply stocked. National Blood Donation Week is September 1-7th with National Blood Donation Day September 4th.
This year, however, the COVID pandemic limited staff and resources of many governor’s offices resulting in some needing to suspend proclamation creations. Yet National Blood Donation Week will still take place the first week of September helping bring in vital blood supplies.
The following states have proclaimed September 4th their State Blood Donation Day and their proclamations are below:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey (September 5th)
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
- Arizona proclaimed September 1-7th Arizona Blood Donation Week.
- California has recognized National Blood Donation Day as well
…….with more to come.
