CPBB relies on the generous contribution of thousands of dedicated individuals to voluntarily donate blood
in the amount needed to provide optimum care for patients in our member hospitals. Individual members,
area schools, businesses, churches, civic and group organizations are a crucial part of this life-saving program.

The Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank is affiliated with America’s Blood Centers (ABC). As a network,
America’s Blood Centers is the nation’s largest group of blood providers and collectors. Our national network enables us to help save patients who need it most; anytime, anywhere.
