The Blood Alliance First opened its doors as the Jacksonville Blood Bank in 1942.

In the 1980's, The Blood Alliance expanded its community donor centers to include a location in southeast Georgia, and changed its name to Florida Georgia Blood Alliance (FGBA). In 2001, FGBA began serving Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, GA, and opened a Community Donor Center. We now also serve the Lowcountry area of South Carolina and are currently known as The Blood Alliance.

The Blood Alliance is a non-profit community blood bank. Our purpose is to ensure that our community has an ample supply of blood, sufficient to meet the needs of local patients. To fulfill these needs, we currently have thirteen community donor centers, and twelve mobile units designed to support blood drives at businesses, churches, schools, civic groups, military, and community locations. We are the sole provider of transfusable blood products to all local hospitals in northeast Florida, and portions of Georgia and South Carolina so we are always in need of donations to keep these hospitals stocked. If we can meet and exceed our own local needs, we are able to share blood with other communities less fortunate.

We offer an in-depth brochure describing who we are, how we help, how we benefit you, reasons to donate, and other information that may interest you. You can download and print this brochure for your reference here. After all, "Isn't it time you get to know your community blood bank?"
