Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center Sends Aid to Ukraine
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is teaming up with Blood Centers of America for a nationwide campaign to provide needed blood collection and transfusion supplies to those impacted in Ukraine. To help replenish blood supplies in Ukraine, as blood products will not be shipped outside of the United States, Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is donating $5 to the Blood Centers of America Foundation for every successful blood donation made from May 2 to May 4, 2022. Fresenius Kabi, a global healthcare company, will match the donations.
Donors can also participate by donating their donor reward points towards the Ukrainian support initiative through Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center's Donor Rewards Store. This opportunity is available from May 2 to May 6, 2022.
Let's work together to save lives and help replenish the blood supplies in Ukraine. For more information or to find a location to donate, visit giveblood.org/SupportUkraine.
