At this time, we require both staff and donors to wear a face covering at blood drives or donation centers. Appointments are also strongly recommended.

Chicago White Sox Special Blood Drive

Baseball is back and we are joining forces with the Chicago White Sox to save lives through blood donation.

The Chicago White Special Blood Drive will take place now through Sept. 7, and if you mention “White Sox” when donating at any Chicagoland Vitalant community donation center or mobile drive you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a baseball signed by a Chicago White Sox player!


DONATE IN SOX GEAR, TAG US FOR A CHANCE TO WIN AN AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALL

Put on your favorite White Sox apparel when you donate because the best-dressed fan who takes a selfie and tags us on social media will win an autographed baseball! Be sure to follow us @VitalantIL on Twitter and Instagram and @VitalantIllinois on Facebook.

All successful blood donations are being tested for COVID-19 antibodies. If your antibodies test comes back positive you may be able to help current COVID-19 patients by donating convalescent plasma. Learn more here.
