Children's Hospital Colorado

Children's Colorado Mobile Blood Drive Program

Are you Interested in Hosting A Blood Drive for Children's Colorado?

On our mobile unit, we are equipped to draw 2 donors every 15 minutes, for a maximum of 32 donors on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. We also have the ability to bring our equipment inside your location for a blood drive. Our minimum goal is to get 28 donors per blood drive. Generally filling a 32 appointment schedule will yield 28 donation after no shows and deferrals.

Since only about 1 in 10 people are willing and able to donate, you may want to do an interest poll before setting a date. All blood is collected in a safe and sterile manner to protect the donor and the patient. A typical whole blood donation is 450ml which is approximately 1 pint. The total process from arrival, paperwork, a brief interview to the actual blood draw takes between 30-45 minutes. Just 30 minutes of your time could mean a lifetime to a child in need!

The mobile program brings in 75-80% of the blood needed for the hospital. If we do not meet our needs, we must purchase from other donor centers in the area. Thank you for helping us continue to meet our patient needs!

Our Mobile Blood Drive hours of service are:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
