Community is important to Atlanta Blood Services (ABS). Our donor base is made up of the variety of people found within the metro-Atlanta area, as are our patients who receive our blood products. If you are an organization or individual looking to partner with ABS please contact us. Together we can make a difference.
By partnering with the Atlanta Blood Services (ABS) local organizations can participate with ABS’ Adopt Program. ABS can provide local organizations a chance to make a difference in the Atlanta area.
Our Adopt-a-Week program allows an organization to select and adopt a day, week, or month out of the year and encourage their members to donate platelets during that time. Atlanta Blood Services can reserve certain times and appointment slots exclusively for the organization.
This program permits an organization to “Adopt” one of the non-local cancer patients currently receiving treatment at the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at Northside Hospital. These patients do not have local family or friends to support their treatment. By adopting this patient the organization agrees to help donate platelets on this patient’s behalf. The organization can decide how many patients they would like to adopt throughout the year.
Through these Adopt Programs Atlanta Blood Services can perform in-house presentations, create internal marketing materials, and track the organizations success.
Atlanta Blood Services is passionate about blood donations and we do receive requests from those in the community who are looking for volunteer opportunities. Give us a call at (404) 459-9877 or email us at ABSInfo@bmtga.com.
