Why donate Whole Blood?
When most people think of “donating blood” they usually think about the regular whole blood donation, which is when you donate a pint of blood. After donation, your whole blood is separated into several different individual components (red cells, plasma, and platelets). Those components are what we send to local hospitals to be transfused to local patients. We need to see about 200 donors total each day to keep up with the local need.
At a mobile drive, you can make either a whole blood or a double red cell appointment. When you arrive, you'll check in and we'll conduct a brief personal history and wellness exam to make sure you're eligible to donate. The entire process (from check-in to refreshments) usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour, though the actual blood donation period only lasts about 15-35 minutes (depending on whether you're giving a whole blood or double red donation). No matter what type of donation you're doing, our staff make it fun and help make the time pass quickly.
