More than half of the blood donations Bonfils annually collects are given through our mobile blood drive programs. Without our fleet, and donors like you, these drives would not be possible and Bonfils would be unable to meet the demands of our hospital partners.
This fleet of more than 40 vehicles travels to more than 2,000 mobile blood drives each year, impacting hundreds of thousands of patients. Unfortunately, Bonfils cancels an average of five mobile blood drives each year due to vehicle issues and that number will only grow as our vehicles continue to age.
Cancelling even one drive because of vehicle issues has a severe impact on the blood supply and ultimately patients in need, as one trauma patient can easily be transfused with the amount of units typically collected on a mobile blood drive.
Gracious donors have already given enough to help Bonfils purchase several of the new vehicles needed. However, additional financial assistance is necessary to reach our goal of $653,000. Please help with this crucial campaign by making a financial gift. Contributions of all sizes will directly impact Bonfils’ ability to make blood donation easy and convenient for blood donors and to serve patients in need.
Together, we can keep Bonfils rolling.
