Make the Most of Your Donation

Giving the ‘right’ type of blood donation – based on your blood type and patient needs – helps make the best use of your valuable lifesaving contribution.

You can donate either a pint of blood or specific blood components using our automated technology. Our request to you may depend on your blood type, platelet count, the date of your last donation and, of course, patient needs at the time of your donation. 

Learn more about the types of blood donations you can give at a Rhode Island Blood Center donation location near you!
