Join our team and help us support Children's Hospital Colorado! We are working together to make a difference at the hospital and its life-saving work and research.
At Children's Colorado Blood Donor Center we have two ways in which you can donate blood, at our fixed site (I-225 & Colfax) or by hosting our mobile blood coach at your business (platelets can only be donated at our fixed site). Our mobile program collects 70% of the blood needed for the hospital. Without blood, we would not be able to perform many lifesaving procedures.
On both of our mobile coaches, we are equipped to draw 2 donors every 15 minutes, for a maximum of 32 donors. We are raising money to fund a refurbishment of our Old Bus. It is over 14 years old and is in need of a facelift, new engine, new generators, and new equipment. Our older bus can park and draw in a much wider range of places, it is utilized for all downtown drives and hard to park locations. We have had recent issues of the bus breaking down where we then have to cancel a drive.
Every year at Children's Colorado, 8,000 units of blood products are transfused into sick and injured infants, children and teens. The blood you donate gives these children a better chance for a healthy life.
Blood donation requires little time. It does, however, make a big difference. Children's Colorado has devoted volunteers who donate blood on a regular basis.
Please consider making a financial contribution if you are unable to give platelets or blood at our center. For more information on donating, please visit us at www.childrenscolorado.org/giveblood.
