Read the official rules.

The Blood Donor Program is a community-based blood center within Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon, NH. Donating blood is a safe, hassle-free and enriching experience. Your donations help treat patients in our community that require blood transfusions during surgery, after an accident, or because they have a disease that requires blood support.

There are many different ways to donate lifesaving blood products, including whole blood, platelet, and plasma automated donations. We need donors on a constant basis. You can earn rewards, support local businesses, and save lives, with your donation.
