Other Ways to Support


Baton Rouge General is fortunate to have the support of an outstanding volunteer staff who contribute their time and talents for the benefit of our hospital. Without them, we could not fulfill our mission of caring for our community. Foundation volunteers help with numerous events and campaigns, including coordination, logistics, promotion, recruiting and assisting staff in various capacities.

Donate Blood

LifeShare is the sole provider of blood services for Baton Rouge General and we encourage you to consider donating through this amazing organization. As the home of South Louisiana's only Burn Center, where many burn patients require large amounts of blood, LifeShare's supply is critical to the lives of many of our patients. And unlike other blood service organizations, 100% of LifeShare's collection goes to support people right here in our own community.

You can donate blood at LifeShare's office, located at 3849 North Boulevard, or request them to come to you.

To schedule a blood drive with LifeShare for your work, church or other organization or to learn more about donating, please call (225) 383-7728 or email Tommie.Langlois@lifeshare.org.
