Helping the community in more ways than one, the YMCA is now partnering with Heartland Blood Centers to provide the gift of life to patients in need. Blood drives are hosted twice a month. Blood is a resource that only we can give each other. The blood you donate will go to people like you in your community – mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, friends, and coworkers.

You go to the YMCA because they care about your community – let Heartland Blood Centers help you even more.


For your convenience, there are several YMCA locations across Chicago that offer blood drives. Click on one of the locations below to find an upcoming drive to make an appointment:
