Florida Blood Services Bloodmobile

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s St. Petersburg Science Center in St. Petersburg, FL, hosted the Florida Blood Services Bloodmobile on April 24.

USGS employees have been donating at a location in combination with the University of South Florida (USF). Karen Morgan and Heather Henkel organized a test at the field center to see whether we could get enough participation to warrant our own stop on a regular basis.

Nine pints were collected from 11 donors for this drive. Employees could schedule ahead to avoid waiting in line. Florida Blood Services did its part by offering coupons to donors for complimentary chicken sandwiches or coffee and a bagel. Florida Blood Services provides for the blood needs of patients at Tampa Bay-area medical facilities and the military through volunteer donations.
