Blood centers throughout the country have experienced a significant drop
in donations, and Baton Rouge has been no exception.
Baton Rouge General is participating in the FDA’s Expanded Access
to Convalescent Plasma program(CCP) that is lead by the Mayo Clinic, and
is looking for donors. If you’ve survived COVID-19, you may be able
to help others fight the virus by donating plasma.
You can donate blood or plasma today at the
LifeShare Blood Center - Baton Rouge on Essen Lane.
- Masks (N95 masks, Procedure masks, Surgical masks, Cloth masks)
- Face shields
- Isolation gowns
- Hand sanitizer
- Wipes (Bleach wipes, Germicidal wipes)
If you have any supplies to donate, please call 225-381-6005.
Make a Financial Donation
Many have asked how they can best support the front line, therefore the
Baton Rouge General Foundation has established a COVID-19 Operations Fund.
This fund will allow our team to work directly with hospital leaders who
understand best what is needed each day.
To make an immediate impact, please
click here and designate your gift to COVID-19. By supporting our hospital directly,
the funds will go to work as soon as they are received. For questions,
please call (225) 763-4372.
