Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
When first-time blood donors are asked why they haven’t donated in the past, they frequently tell us, “No one ever asked me before.” Volunteer Blood Drive Coordinators are essential to recruiting new blood donors simply by asking people you know to give blood. Our staff of Donor Resource Consultants will work with your organization to identify a date and location for your blood drive, and will provide a wide range of marketing materials to support your efforts to recruit donors from within your organization.
We can hold a blood drive in a conference room, gymnasium, classroom or similar location within your facility, or, if a suitable location can’t be found, we can bring a Donor Bus (a fully functioning donor-room-on-wheels) directly to you!
