Holiday Hugs Platelet Blood Drive

November 21, 2016 - November 28, 2016

banner

If you are a platelet donor, come be part of our annual Holiday Hugs program!

Apheresis/platelet donors are encouraged to sign up and give three times over the holidays, during specific time periods. With the first of the three donations, you’ll sign up and commit to making all three donations. We’ll make sure you know about the specific dates for returning to donate.

Complete the program by making all three donations, and you’ll receive 2,000 additional LifePoints!

To participate in Holiday Hugs, you’ll need to choose three donation dates — one from Donation #1, one from Donation #2, and one from Donation #3 below.

You’ll need to make an appointment so we’ll have a spot reserved for you. To make an appointment at Thomson Donor Center in Springfield, call Kristy at (417) 227-5004. To make an appointment at our Springdale Donor Center, call Maribel at (479) 927-1200.

To set up your appointment online, click HERE for a list of our donor centers, and then click on the red “Schedule Now” in the far right column for that donor center. You will be taken to a calendar where you may choose your dates.

Remember to choose dates to return for Donation #2 and Donation #3.
