Donating Blood at Children's Hospital Colorado

The entrance to the blood donor center at Children's Hospital Colorado.

Every year at Children's Hospital Colorado, 8,000 units of blood products are transfused into sick and injured infants, children and teens. Without this blood, many of the lifesaving procedures performed at Children's Hospital Colorado would not be possible. The blood you donate gives these children a better chance for a healthy life.

Blood donation does not cost money and requires little time. It does, however, make a big difference. Children's Hospital Colorado has devoted volunteers who donate blood on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we can still run short during times of crisis or with children that have a very specific need. Help us maintain a steady supply of the wide range of blood products that kids need.
