You save lives by donating blood, platelets, and plasma at Houchin Community Blood Bank mobile drives. By donating, you do something kind for others, and your generosity makes a difference in someone’s life.

Panda Express World Blood Donor Day Fundraiser

Friday, June 14th is World Blood Donor Day!

We have partnered with Panda Express to help us celebrate this awesome day with our community. You can help us raise money by using the unique donor code when checking out your order at Panda.

28% of all sales on World Blood Donor Day will be donated to Houchin, which will be used to help us purchase a new TRIMA machine, blood bags for lifesaving blood products, and other facility needs.

Celebrate giving the gift of life while supporting Houchin's efforts to keep the blood supply stable and available to all those who need it.

When you give, people live!
