(COLO) – Blood donations see a sharp decline during the winter months, but this doesn’t stop the need. According to Vitalant, someone in the U.S. needs blood every two seconds. Whether an ongoing health condition like cancer or the need for a blood transfusion from a traumatic injury like a motor vehicle crash, the need for donations is still there!

The Colorado State Patrol is partnering with Vitalant for the fourth year to advance its shared mission of saving lives. Registration is now open to donate blood during the month of March 2024 for the Colorado State Patrol blood drive. Troopers are asking you to join them in giving the gift of life!

It's simple! Sign up to receive an email invitation to donate.

The best part is that when your email arrives, click “Schedule Now,” and you get to pick the location and time that works best for you! There are eleven permanent locations, including communities such as Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, Greeley and Denver. Plus, there are regularly occurring mobile locations all across Colorado.
