Blood & Organ Donation
Give blood or donate your organs to save lives in our community through Wayne UNC Health Care in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
Your Blood Donation Helps Patients
Every day blood donors help patients of all ages, including accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer, according to the American Red Cross. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
When you donate blood in advance, patients can receive the blood as soon as they need it.
Blood Drives at Wayne UNC
Take part in The Blood Connection community blood drives at Wayne UNC. We host blood drives every 56 days (which matches how often you can donate). The drives are open to all community members. Find an onsite blood drive.
Why You Should Donate Organs
Choose to donate organs while you’re living or as a legacy after your death to improve the lives of others. If you donate your organs, eyes and tissue, you could save up to eight lives, according to Donate Life America.
Register to become an organ donor with Carolina Donor Services online or at a Wayne UNC blood drive.
