Young donor group

Welcome, Vitalant high school blood drive coordinators!

#BecauseofYou, the future of our nation’s blood supply is being built today. As our most loyal and frequent blood donors become older, young people are the future of our nation’s blood supply; the future of ensuring blood is available for every patient in need. Hosting blood drives at your school helps ensure that your students have ample opportunity to start the lifesaving habit of donating blood on a regular basis. In turn, we want to support your efforts, so we created this resource hub exclusively for high school blood drive coordinators and sponsors.

“I know firsthand what a great opportunity blood drives are to raise awareness and connect with blood donors. Roseville High School has been a pillar in our community for over 100 years and we take a lot of pride in synergizing with other spectacular organizations that help our society; working with Vitalant is a win, win.”  - Brent Mattix, Activities Director and Blood Drive Coordinator
