Host a Blood Drive

Support the Community in a Uniquely Satisfying Way

Blood donation is one of the few ways that you can literally "give of yourself" to make a difference in someone else's life. This simple fact makes blood donation truly unique when it comes to supporting the community.

Hosting a blood drive at your business, church, school or through a community group is an easy and gratifying way to demonstrate your commitment to civic responsibility and the community in which you live. Each unit you help collect at your drive could save 3 lives. 

Every day, blood recipients at over 30 hospitals in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky rely on the generosity of others who donate their time and life-saving blood to provide the minimum 400 units of blood needed.

We make it very easy--we come to you in almost all instances.

Start Planning Your Own Blood Drive!

Step 1: Contact Hoxworth Blood Center at (513) 451-0910 or email elizabeth.davis@uc.edu your potential drive location and/or zipcode.

Step 2: Plan your blood drive. Hoxworth Blood Center will assign you a Recruiter who will work with you one on one to plan your blood drive and ensure its success.

Based on the projected size of your group and type of drive, your Mobile Recruiter will suggest an inside drive, a mobile bus, or in some cases, suggest using one of our Neighborhood Donor Centers.

Step 3: Promote your drive. The Recruiter will also provide you with the necessary information and tools to make your drive successful. The information covered will include such topics as:

  • Basic recruitment techniques and tips for running a successful blood drive.
  • Blood drive space requirements and timetables.
  • Material and promotional support.
