Give Blood or Platelets. Give Life. Give Today.
Family and friends can give blood and platelets directly to their loved one.
City of Hope patients — most of whom are fighting cancer — rely on more than 37,000 units of blood and platelets each year for their survival. And every one of those units comes from people like you — family, friends and other caring individuals who want to make a difference.
Blood and platelet donations save lives every day at City of Hope. Watch the fascinating process as our scientists prepare donations for transfusion.
Find a Blood Drive in Your Community
City of Hope's Blood Donor Center continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our blood supply as well as that of other suppliers. There is no substitute for donated blood. During this critical time, City of Hope is requesting that if your company or organization has access to an inside location that we could use to set up blood collection, please consider contacting us to coordinate a possible inside set-up/blood drive. We are not taking our bus/bloodmobile unit into the community at this time.
During blood drives, we are following all Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines around physical distancing by maintaining 6 feet apart or more in between each donor bed, during registration and at our cookie and juice station during postdonation.
