About this location

Make a difference by donating at our Addison Donor Center.

The Addison Donor Center has beds to accommodate seven donors at a time. Though the goal for needed number of donors changes each month, Addison attempts to collect around 325 units of whole blood, 150 units of platelets and 50 units of plasma per month.

When you donate, you’ll have the chance to meet eight dedicated employees who will make sure your donation experience is a great one. Schedule an appointment to be a lifesaver in North Dallas today.
