Celebrating 50 Years in Our Community

Nebraska Community Blood Bank opened on October 14, 1968 and has spent the past 50 years growing into an innovative leader in blood banking. In 2018, as we celebrate this exciting milestone, we want to thank the people who have helped us achieve a half century of success: our founders, blood donors, sponsors, hospital partners, staff, and volunteers. The growth and success we have seen has only been possible because of their contributions.

Help us set the course for the next half century as we strive to be the best we can be as we reach across Nebraska, helping save even more lives through blood donation.
