Hosting a Blood Drive with LifeShare
LifeShare Blood Center is the steward of your community blood supply. We partner with businesses, schools, and other organizations in your community who are dedicated to having regular blood drives, ensuring your local medical facilities have a readily available blood supply — when patients in your community need it.
How to Organize a Blood Drive
With some planning, you and your organization can have a successful blood drive. A local LifeShare Donor Recruiter will work with you to help you with or a recurring blood donor program. For most blood drives, LifeShare can set up to collect blood donations in available space at your location, or a mobile donor coach can be brought on site.
Sponsor a Replenishment Blood Drive
LifeShare’s Replenishment Program allows donors to give blood on behalf of someone who is using, has used, or will use blood products. Although the blood does not go directly to the beneficiary in the form a transfusion, it helps by offsetting some of the associated costs of blood products. Additionally, the program helps restore the community blood supply so products are available to local patients.
Only the blood that already has been donated, tested, and processed is available for transfusion to patients. Often, patients’ friends and family members want to help replace the blood used by a patient. Your LifeShare Donor Recruiter will help you plan a replenishment blood drive.
