Keys to Success

Coordinating a blood drive involves dedication and is a true team effort. A Red Cross representative will work with you every step of the way. The key ingredients to a successful drive include:

Commitment – The Red Cross commits significant resources to each drive, and each pint collected can affect up to three patients in need. It takes both personal and organizational commitment to make a drive successful and we need and count on both!
