Host a Blood Drive

You can give back to your community in many ways, and hosting a blood drive is one of them.  As the local supplier of blood and blood products, blood drives help replenish supplies used by area patients and hospitals.

Through individual, groups and businesses, Blood Assurance holds thousands of drives each year- and they can be done in two ways:

  • A bloodmobile- which comes to you!
  • A center-based drive at a Blood Assurance donation center near you.

Many times, families looking to honor a loved one will ask to host a blood drive.  Families with a member battling certain cancers will look to replenish supplies used to ensure blood is available for other patients in need.

“Our business, Threads, was founded on the philanthropic principle of giving back to the community, particularly to childhood cancer research.  This commitment came from my own experience when my son Colin was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at 14 months old.  Today, Colin is cancer free.

So when one of my employees, Laverne Guthrie, told me that her grandson, Davis, was diagnosed with leukemia, my reaction was “what can Threads do to help?”

Davis’ fight against cancer with chemotherapy required several blood transfusions.  To help in supplying their blood, Threads joined two other businesses in the community and we sponsored a blood drive for Davis. The community’s response was overwhelming. One blood drive at Thread’s received 50 units of blood and registered 20 first-time donors.

I encourage other business owners to join Blood Assurance in their efforts to save lives, and sponsor a blood drive.”- Mindy Sanders
