RVMers open their hearts, and veins, for Bonfils blood donations

Feb 25, 2016

Bonfils-blood-donation-2016_04_story.jpgApproximately 81 million pints of blood are donated annually, according to the World Health Organization.  On February 19, 11 RVMers helped boost that number as they headed to Bonfils Blood Center to donate blood and platelets as part of the February RV Difference event.

At the Denver West Bonfils location, ten employees donated whole blood and Vice President of Strategic Services Jennifer Betz donated platelets.  Bonfils constantly needs both as whole blood has a shelf life of 35-42 days when refrigerated and platelets can be stored for up to seven days.

"The platelet donation took longer, but I felt much better afterwards compared to when I've donated blood and passed out.  Donating platelets helped me connect the dots regarding the apheresis part of our business," said Betz.

Director of Revenue Tracy Moore donated blood and was chosen for a special research project by Bonfils. 

Jen-Betz-donates-platelets_02_story.jpg"When I got there they asked me if I would be willing to participate in a research project.  They were studying the plastic that the blood is stored in. They were short on participants and needed more people with my blood type.  I said yes, of course," said Moore.

"It took a little longer than a normal appointment because there were more questions from the research company.  It was kind of them to pay me $60 for participating," said Moore.

Last year RVMers donated 2.5 gallons of blood to Bonfils Blood Center.

Bonfils has been a community blood center in Colorado since 1943.  Learn more about them and find a donation center near you at
