Host a Community Blood Drive

Blood drives save lives! They're also are a great way to bring people from your office or community together to support a common cause.

For those who are not eligible to donate themselves, hosting a blood drive is wonderful way to help those in need. With two state-of-the-art vehicles, Cedars-Sinai hosts various mobile blood drives throughout the Los Angeles area. We bring the donation center to you.

Depending on the number of potential participants, Cedars-Sinai will bring either a self-contained motor coach or a specially equipped box truck to your location. We'll provide everything necessary for the blood drive, including refreshments.

Donating just 1 unit of blood can save up to 2 lives.

Preparing for a Blood Drive

When you host a blood drive, you choose the date, time, location and outreach to sign up as many donors as possible. Our team will take care of everything else and make the process as painless as possible—for you and the donors.

There are multiple ways you can donate. Find out about the current level of demand for blood, platelets and plasma.
