We know the cancellation of Mardi Gras has hurt each of you financially. This program was created to celebrate, support and recognize your integral role in the celebration of carnival.
Participating bands can donate at any one of our Donor Centers located in Hammond, Harvey, Mandeville, Metairie, Slidell, and Thibodaux (Click to view hours of operation and locations).
If you would like to participate in the program but don’t have a center in your area, we would be more than happy to bring a blood drive to you!
To participate in this program, please contact Elizabeth Garland at 985-273-7875 or EGarland@TheBloodCenter.org
Each participating band will receive a unique group number that must be given upon donation in order to receive credit.
