Vitalant supports 45 hospitals in the Bay Area with their blood supply.  We are a non-profit, community based organization that runs 100’s of blood drives a month to keep up with patient needs. 

The winter season can be a challenging time for collecting blood donations, due to factors such as the cold and flu season, holiday travel and other competing priorities. However, every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. If you would like to help by hosting a drive please contact Steve Pignataro at

On behalf of local hospitals and patients , thank you!

Red Cross continues to do needed blood drives in the East Bay as well.

I am sending this in hopes that we can reach out to our networks to help fill in the gaps on these three upcoming blood drives. Please send all potential donors to:

Have them pledge their support and then enter one of the sponsor codes below to schedule their appointment.

10/26/19 – TRAINING FOR WARRIORS – 1635 Challenge Dr, Concord, CA 94520 – Sponsor Code= TFW

10/29/19 – Pacific Workplaces – 3478 Buskirk Ave #1000, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523 – Sponsor Code= 3Lives

10/29/19 – Rotary Club Antioch – 4800 Golf Course Rd, Antioch, CA 94509 – Sponsor Code=AntiochRotary

It is critical that these blood drives go well to ensure our hospitals have the supply they need to take care of every patient.

It is going to comedown to the last blood drive this month and every unit we can get is going to be needed to achieve our goal.

Thank you!!!
