A blood donation is a great way to give back to our community and have a positive impact on the health of your neighbors. There is a constant need. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.

With your 1 donation, you could save the lives of up to three people.

If you’re a blood donor, you’re a hero to someone, somewhere,

who received your gracious gift of life.

SageWest is hosting a blood drive for Vitalant on December 4th at SageWest Lander. You can make an appointment by clicking on the link. Thanks, in advance, for your generous donation to this community need.

LANDER – Wednesday, December 4th from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
SageWest Healthcare-Lander, Conference room
1320 Bishop Randall Drive
Make an appointment.

To donate, individuals must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in generally good health.

Donating blood is a simple, four-step process that includes registration, a confidential medical history survey and a mini-physical, the actual donation process and a post-donation snack and beverage. The brief mini-physical checks your body’s temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin to ensure that your blood is safe and ready to give. The actual blood donation takes about eight to 10 minutes. After your donation, you’ll enjoy a refreshing snack and be back to your regular daily routine after a brief rest.

If you are interested in giving blood, please contact Vitalant at 1-800-456-7057 or online at vitalant.org.

Know Before You Go

  • Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded.
  • Donors can give either whole blood or specific blood components (red cells, plasma or platelets).
  • Healthy bone marrow makes a constant supply of red cells, plasma, and platelets. The body will replenish the elements given during a blood donation – some in a matter of hours and others in a matter of weeks.
  • All donated blood is tested for HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis and other infectious diseases before it is released to hospitals.
