In the meantime, the non-profit organization is encouraging donations at the existing clinic until its final day of operation.

“We will continue to be open at our 20th Street East site until the end of June,” Jones said.

“As most blood is sent to hospitals within one week of donation, we’re asking for the ongoing support of our donor, partner and volunteer community during and after our move to ensure recipients get the blood they need when they need it.”
