Important Note **Casper’s donation center will be closed on Friday, Nov. 8th, so their Pie for Platelets promotion will start on Saturday, Nov. 9th.
A growing number of platelet donors are needed every day to transform the lives of patients. Platelets are a special component of blood that helps control bleeding. They are used to help trauma victims as well as transplant and cancer patients.
Platelets have only a five day shelf life, which is why it’s so important for donors to continuously replenish the supply. While platelet donation takes a little more of your time, about 2 hours, it ensures hospitals have enough of this precious resource on hand for patients depending on it.
Transform a life, and your own this November. Make a donation appointment at vitalant.org
