Blood Donation Center

There is no substitute for blood and people are the only source. You could save the life of a patient in need by making a plasma or platelet donation.

Learn about the donation eligibility requirements and the types of donations you can make at the UNC Health Blood Donation Center.

Gift Shop and Dining

The Cranberry Corner Gift Shop has everything you need - whether you’re looking for a unique gift, beautiful flowers or even a quick snack. If you don’t have time to stop by the gift shop, you can send a free Cheer Card to one of our patients.

If you’re interested in a more traditional dining experience, visit one of our cafes. Conveniently located throughout UNC Medical Center, the cafes offer several dining options in a casual setting.
