Host a Blood Drive
Tranum and Extraco donated a blood mobile in 2007 to go into the community to help provide an adequate inventory of blood for the patients being treated at Scott & White. The 40-foot mobile contains three interview rooms, five faux leather donor chairs, a refreshment center, a DVD player and a 20-inch widescreen plasma television.
In 2008, Scott & White Blood Center acquired a second mobile aimed to accommodate small local businesses. This "mini" mobile contains one interview room, three faux leather donor chairs, a refreshment center, and two 15-inch plasma televisions with DVD players.
The goal of mobile drives is to provide an easy, convenient means for members of outlying communities, businesses, church members and civic organizations to donate blood.
If you are interested in organizing a mobile blood drive, please fill out a blood drive request form or call us directly at 1-877-724-HERO.
Blood Drives should be scheduled with the Scott & White Blood Center far enough in advance to allow for sufficient planning and promotion of the blood drive. Blood Drives can be scheduled for a variety of times depending on the needs and number of prospective donors.
