Life South Community Blood Centers

The Atlanta area is rich in culture and southern charm, and the blood banks are no different. Atlanta has a series of small blood banks that are not affiliated with a larger organization, which adds to the small appeal.

  3. I’ve been phoning the organizations you’ve listed as PAYING for plasma &/or platelets &/or blood (I have AB- which is rare & therefore valuable). But none of the places you’ve listed are paying anything. It’s all donations. What’s up with that? In the past, I’ve always donated my blood & plasma, never thinking twice of monetizing my donation. Only thinking of the people benefiting from it. But I’m financially strapped & trying everything I can to raise more money. Please advise for the Atlanta, Georgia area. Thanks!

    • Ok, found 1! Adma Bio Center @ 6290 Jimmy Carter Blvd Ste 208, Norcross, GA. And they pay $25 for plasma, twice a week max. Must bring in gov’t photo id, ss card & bill no less than 30 days old if id doesn’t show current address.
