Be a Hometown Hero

The time is now to be a Hometown Hero!  Help us give back to communities outside the greater Lincoln and Omaha city limits who join in our mission to help save lives. 

Donate blood at an upcoming Hometown Heroes blood drive or join our Hometown Heroes blood drive campaign by sponsoring a blood drive. The summer program, which runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, awards communities that pull together for the cause of blood donation with monetary funds for a community or organizational project.

Download Hometown Heroes Guidelines to see if your community qualifies to become a Hometown Hero, and let’s work together to build a hometown of life-saving heroes!
