Host a blood drive
You can make an even bigger impact in local patients' lives by hosting a Platelet Party. All you need is 5-12 friends/relatives to join you at one of our donation centers. You pick a date/time that works for you and the donation center staff. We supply the "party" atmosphere - complete with food, decorations and gift bags for donors.
Platelets are constantly needed to support cancer therapy, open-heart surgery, blood disorders and organ transplants.
The donation takes about two hours and is done through a machine (apheresis) - donating with friends makes the process go faster! For details, click here.
