Every two seconds, someone needs blood. Blood is needed daily for surgeries, emergencies, medical procedures and cancer treatments. The need, here in the Chicagoland area, is great.
LifeSource holds thousands of mobile blood drives each year throughout the community, many with local corporations and organizations. These drives play a vital role in the delivery of healthcare in our region and are responsible for supporting tens of thousands of area lives each year.
You can help the community blood supply by hosting a mobile blood drive at your place of work or worship, at a community center or school. Our LifeSource Account Managers will walk you through the process. We only require a few things: a room at your facility or a location to park our donor coach, several tables and chairs, a contact person and a team of two or more to help recruit donors.
That’s it. LifeSource does the rest. We provide an online registration process, posters, staff, equipment and everyone’s favorite part of the donation process—the snacks and beverages.
If you are interested in hosting a blood drive with LifeSource, please contact us to submit your inquiry. Please include the name and address (including zip code) of your organization, along with a phone number where we can reach you. And let us know if you’d like to host a bone marrow registry drive alongside your blood drive.
If you have a question regarding a past, current or upcoming blood drive, please contact your LifeSource Account Manager directly. If you do not have their direct phone number, please call 877-543-3768 and ask to be transferred to their direct line.
