Host a Blood Drive

Every drive makes a difference

When you host a blood drive, you’re saving hundreds of Texans at a time.

Hosting a blood drive is a unique and rewarding way for your group to support the local community. Blood drives promote public health, engage the community, and make blood donation accessible to potential donors who might not give otherwise. Let us know if you are interested in serving as a Volunteer Drive Coordinator, the point person for organizing your group’s blood drive.

Interested in hosting a blood drive?
Your Blood Drive Consultant will work with you to schedule, plan, and promote your blood drive. Blood drives can take place in conference rooms, gymnasiums, and similar inside locations or, we can bring our mobile donor coach to you!
