Types of Donations
Based on your blood type, personal characteristics and, often, where the need is greatest, you can ensure that you make the most of valuable gift. While a whole blood donation can be made 3-4 times a year, you also can donate just one part of your blood—red blood cells or platelets—and provide even more of the life-saving gifts patients need. Whatever type of donation you choose, there is more than one way to save lives.
