ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

Blood Bank of Delmarva, the exclusive provider of blood & blood products to all 19 Delmarva hospitals, is pleased to announce the 2019 Blood Drive Challenge for companies and organizations.

The Blood Drive Challenge is a fun-filled friendly competition among local companies/organizations to see who can make the most impact in their community by supporting blood donation during the summer months, when donations often decline by 25%.  The challenge offers participating companies/organization the opportunity to bring people together and promote BBD’s lifesaving mission that could help save thousands of lives each year.

Join other companies/organizations across Delmarva by hosting a blood drive, or encourage your staff to donate blood at one of our Donor Centers. Your participation can help avoid a summer blood shortage. The company that collects the most units of blood will be presented with the “SBD Blood Donation Challenge Award” at the 2019 SBD Awards Celebration event in October.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  • Sign your company up to host up to two blood drives between May 20  and September 11, 2019
  • Participating companies are placed in one of three groups based on company size:
    • Group 1: 50 - 150 employees 
    • Group 2: 151 to 500 employees 
    • Group 3: Large - 501 + employees 

The company that collects the most units of blood by group size will be awarded with the SBD Blood Donation Challenge Award. The 2nd and 3rd runner-up by group size will also receive recognition.

You can host a drive exclusively for your employees or host a drive that is open to the public. If donors are not able to attend on the day a blood drive is scheduled, you can also send donors to any BBD donor centers to donate and receive credit. Donors donating at a center MUST register their donation online so their company/organization can receive credit. The link to the online form can be found at https://www.delmarvablood.org/registerdonation/. The sponsor for the drive can also provide the link to the online form.
