Fantastic Spring Blood Drive

510 S. Farwell St., Eau Claire WI 54701 • 715.835.3734 Map to the Cathedral

Thank you again for hosting the April 5th, 2024 blood drive. We collected 25 units of blood on an original goal of 20 units and when divided into 3 separate blood components we have the potential to help up to 75 patients in need!

The staff said it was a very good day and were extremely grateful for you and your volunteers. How do you feel the day went? Is there anything we can do better or differently next time? 

Please share the attached results flier with your members and the community. It’s wonderful to see 8 first time donors! We hope everyone had a wonderful experience and we will see them again next time!

  • We do not have a future blood program scheduled, would it be possible to partner again this summer and fall/winter timeframe? We received a hefty increase to our collection goals over the summer and are looking for sponsors to add additional blood drive opportunities in the community.
  • Summer is a Critical Need timeframe due to donors taking time off, traveling, vacationing and upcoming holidays. This leads to a decrease in donor activity and a drop in available blood products for patients. Yet, the need for blood products is constant.
  • We have some excellent donor incentives this summer to help promote upcoming programs and keep donors participating!

Please let me know if it’s at all possible to add a summer blood drive this July and again this fall or wintertime frame. Winter is also a Critical Need period with holiday and fewer blood programs; blood drives we can add in November help patients through December and/or programs in December help blood products remain readily available through the New Year.
