Weekend Warrior Platelet Program


Sponsors & Coordinators







Thank you for being a platelet donor!  Because of people like you, patients in our local hospitals receive life-saving transfusions. 


Become a Weekend Warrior!

Beginning Saturday, August 5, 2017, LifeShare is starting the Weekend Warrior Program.  This program will run through February 25, 2018.  Donations can be made either Saturday or Sunday.


  • Weekend platelet donors will be given a Weekend Warrior punch card.
  • Weekend platelet donors will provide the punch card to staff on the day of donation.
  • A staff member will punch the card for that day’s donation and will rebook you for more weekend appointments.
  • When you reach the 4th, 8th, and 12th donation you will receive a Weekend Warrior gift for each milestone donation.

Why are Weekends so important?

Platelets are special because after collection they must be transfused to a patient within 5 days.  Platelets are needed every day.  However, most platelet transfusions occur during the middle of the week when most surgeries and procedures occur.  In order to meet those needs, platelets collected on weekends are critical.
