Columbus Blue Jackets

Since 2005 the Columbus Blue Jackets have been a major supporter of the blood program, sponsoring the entire month of September through the campaign “Hockey: It’s in Your Blood.” By providing game tickets, autographed team memorabilia, hats, sweatshirts, and a number of other items, including a Zamboni ride, the Blue Jackets have helped recruit people to give the gift of life. The Blue Jackets host their own blood drive during September, providing a pair of preseason game tickets to every donor. In total, the Blue Jackets have sponsored more than 128,000 blood donations!
