ISF Blood & Platelet Drives
The Isabella Santos Foundation Annual Blood & Platelet Drives with OneBlood began in honor of Isabella who’s life benefited from frequent blood transfusions. OneBlood is like a family to us and we will never forget their support and dedication in increasing Isabella’s quality of life. We have four scheduled drives for 2021. For every confirmed donation during scheduled drives, OneBlood will generously donate $10 back to ISF. We hope you will join us to help honor Isabella’s life and legacy bringing in much-needed platelet and blood units during such a crucial time.
ISF is teaming up with OneBlood for four blood and platelet drives during 2021! Share your power by donating platelets or blood at the Charlotte Center, 4447 South Blvd. or Isabella Santos Foundation Center, 12239 Community House Road. For every platelet or blood donation during our scheduled drives, OneBlood will donate $10 to the Isabella Santos Foundation. In addition, all donors will receive a wellness check, including a COVID-19 antibody test, cholesterol, and blood pressure. The antibody test is authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the virus, regardless of whether they ever showed symptoms. OneBlood has implemented additional social distancing safety protocols to protect donors and staff. Appointments are required to donate.

Celebrate a life by saving lives. We look forward to having your support and continuing this tradition year after year.
Why do we support OneBlood? As the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals, it is very important for kids fighting cancer to have local resources to count on every day. OneBlood supports our local hospitals by providing blood needed to treat community patients.
Who does OneBlood help? In our community, there are countless stories of patients battling illness. A common element in many of these stories is blood – red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The availability of blood products is often the difference between life and death. Every time you donate blood with OneBlood, you’re supporting the life of someone in our own community; a young cancer patient, an African American with sickle cell disease, an adult undergoing a transplant, or an accident victim. Supporting OneBlood saves local lives and keeps families whole. Together, we work to strengthen the bonds of community.
Help save lives year round! Contact OneBlood to make your appointment to give blood or platelets at your convenience and take a look at public drives coming near you. It’s amazing to see donors who donate blood or platelets year round in honor of Isabella!
