Winter has come and gone with holidays and local days of festivities throughout the spring. During that time, numerous urgent calls for blood went out and The Foundation would like to take a moment and thank every board member who stepped up to answer that call, especially those who went above and beyond and hosted their own blood drives.
As we head into the summer months, the need for blood will continue to rise with families ready to travel to vacation destinations and once postponed surgeries get rescheduled. You can help meet this need by reaching out to Adriana Vasquez to host your own blood drive. Perhaps its something you have considered before but are unsure exactly how that works. Maybe you’ve wondered if you have enough time to commit to taking on a whole blood drive. Adriana is more than happy to walk you through initial steps over the phone or via email.
Blood drives are typically scheduled 12 weeks in advance for the best host experience, but occasionally there are gaps in the schedule due to cancellations or a greater need where a blood drive can make all the difference. To begin, all you need is a zip code for the potential blood drive location and Adriana can connect you with your local Donor Recruitment Consultant. Blood drive hosts will be asked to have at least 25 committed donors sign up to donate to ensure a successful event. Click here to learn more about the process of hosting a blood drive.
