No need for the luck of the Irish to make an impact. Coursing through your veins is a “river of gold” fora patient that is in need of a blood transfusion. Donors like you allow those patients a second chance at life.

Celebrate your luck by giving blood on March 16 at the Baton Rouge donation center located at 8234 One Calais Ave. or a mobile blood drive and you will receive a Save the Humans water bottle & a $25 Amazon.com gift card through the online rewards store in the form of bonus points.

Schedule your appointment to donate at vitalant.org or call 877-25VITAL.

Blood donation takes about an hour from check-in to refreshments. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Fast Track Health History the day they donate. It’s at vitalant.org.

Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 and 17 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
