GPT Blood Drive
GPT began holding blood drives in 2009 to support the American Red Cross and to help ease blood supply shortages. Blood drives are held on the bloodmobile at the south end of the terminal in the delivery parking area, and parking is complimentary while donating. Donors must register first inside the terminal by baggage claim.
For more information on the American Red Cross and future blood drives, please contact Liz Gaulke
