Donate Blood

Blood centers throughout the country have experienced a significant drop in donations, and Baton Rouge has been no exception.

Donate Plasma

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.

Supplies needed:

  • Masks (N95 masks, Procedure masks, Surgical masks, Cloth masks)
