Host a blood drive
The State of Illinois Donation Center is closing. The last day for collections will be Friday, Dec. 16. If you have an appointment to give there between now and Dec. 16, it is vital you keep it because there is currently a critical need for blood.
If you are eligible to donate, we encourage you to continue doing so. A new downtown Chicago donation opportunity is coming to S. La Salle St. and West Adams St. (190 S. La Salle St.) every Friday beginning Jan. 6.
Vitalant has 15 other donation centers in Chicagoland that offer blood and platelet donation appointments. Vitalant also schedules blood drives throughout the community. New drives are added to the schedule frequently.
Search for a donation opportunity near you by clicking the “Schedule donation” button above, using the Vitalant mobile app or calling 877-25-VITAL (877-258-4825).
Collection Types: Whole Blood, Platelets, Plasma, Double Red Blood Cells
Then, use any donate button to schedule an appointment.
