U.S. Celebrates National Blood Donor Month

Wed, January 10, 2018 4:20 PM | Steve Bolton (Administrator)

National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January since 1970 with the goal of increasing blood and platelet donations during winter – one of the most difficult times of year to collect enough blood products to meet patient needs. Inclement winter weather – like what the U.S. is experiencing so far this year – often results in cancelled blood drives, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to become temporarily unable to donate.

Share photos and stories of your blood center's celebrations with ADRP on social media by tagging #adrpgiveblood and #nationalblooddonormonth on Facebook and Instagram.
