Donor Stories

 

I will remember the first time I gave blood for the rest of my life. It was my first term of my freshman year of college. A bunch of us decided we needed to give blood. Some people had scheduled appointments but we were just looking to give. I had never given before so I was a little nervous. All four us gave and were happy to do it. We felt we had to help in some way. I have given many times since but that day was special. It was September 12th, 2001.

Host a Mini Blood Drive!

Your Organization Could Help Save Lives

Not every organization or business is able to host a blood drive at its own facility.  Smaller organizations and businesses can be part of the Red Cross team by sponsoring a blood drive at a local American Red Cross Blood Donor Center. 

The Mini Blood Drive Program is a quick and easy, outreach opportunity for smaller groups. Your group provides the donors and someone to coordinate the blood drive, and the Red Cross provides the place as well as support and publicity materials to help make the drive a success.

For more information or to schedule a Mini Blood Drive please contact Cheryl Champine at (313) 549-7048 or by email.
