Community blood drives set for winter

The perfect gift is at Bonfils Blood Center.

The winter months are often the most difficult to maintain Colorado’s blood supply due to holiday activities, poor weather and road conditions and cold and flu season.

With seven community donor centers and as many as 10 mobile drives each day, you’re sure to find a donation location to suite your needs.

Bonfils Blood Center provides blood and blood products to nearly 200 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout Colorado and beyond. Bonfils needs nearly 3,000 people to donate blood every week to meet the needs of the community and be prepared for any unforeseen events.
