Blood Donor Programs

NICU Program: O negative individuals

In this program, O negative donors commit to giving blood 2 to 4 times a year. Their blood is dedicated for transfusions to our babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). These baby-saving heroes are distinguished by the “Baby Foot” keychain that were given to them when they commit to the making the difference to the lives of our NICU babies’ lives.

Platelet Donor Program: Dedicated donors who also give their time

In this program, donors of various blood types commit to giving a few hours of their time to donate the gift of platelets more than once a year. All donors get to select a gift card to a popular food/beverage establishment after each donation.

Donors who commit to donating six times a year receive a special gift as a token of our appreciation for their generosity.

Type O Donor Program: O positive and O negative individuals

Donors in this program commit to giving blood 2 to 4 times a year. The donated blood is used for transfusions to our type O patients.

Rare Donor Program: Individuals with Rare Antigens

These donors are people with very special blood that is hard to find. Their blood is compatible with a small group of patients whose body will tolerate only blood from specific donors. Donors in this program commit to come in and donate blood whenever we contact them because of a specific patient need.
