Susanville Community Blood Drive Happens January 23rd and 24th

Become a blood hero by donating to the Susanville Blood Drive January 23rd and 24th and you could not only save a life, but get a chance to win one of 24 $500 gift cards that Vitalant to donors during 2024.

Every three seconds, someone in the United States needs blood and more donors are needed daily for trauma, surgery and cancer patients in our community. The blood you donate today can help save up to two lives. Since blood can’t be manufactured, we rely completely on volunteer blood donors.

There is an urgent need for donors of all types to give blood now to meet the current needs of patients. According to Vitalant the winter season is always a challenging time to collect blood for many reasons, including cold and flu season. Yet, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.

“Blood on the shelf helps patients every day – for traumas, cancer treatments and critical transfusions – and enables us to be ready if disaster strikes,” explains Dr. Ralph Vassallo, Chief Medical Officer at Vitalant.

The blood drive will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 905 Richmond Road on Tuesday, January 23rd, from 12:00p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Wednesday, January 24th, from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

Vitalant asks that you please complete your Fast Track Health History the day of your donation on your smartphone or computer at vitalant.org/health.

Walk-ins are welcome or you can schedule and appointment online at the Vitalant website.
