Due to COVID-19, Versiti has seen more than 4,000 blood drives canceled—that’s an estimated loss of more than 130,000 units of blood. But the need for blood never ends. We count on community members and locations such as churches, school, community centers and businesses to come together each day to help us ensure the blood is when and where it is needed most.
If you’re able, we encourage you to share this invaluable gift with other local families by giving blood at a Versiti donor center or community blood drive – or even hosting a drive yourself. There are lots of ways you can ensure patients in your community have the blood they need, when they need it:
Together as one family, we can help make blood the gift that keeps on giving.
- Make an appointment to donate blood at your local Versiti Blood Center or a mobile blood drive in your community.
- Hosting a blood drive in honor of your loved one. Learn more.
- Raise awareness of the need for blood on social media. Take a photo of your loved one in their shirt included in this package and tag it on social with #pintsforhope. Help our community see the beautiful faces of who their donations help!
