In typical Statesboro fashion, one good thing is never enough. Construction is underway for two different plasma collection centers in Statesboro. One will be located in the former Rite Aid building at 556 Northside Drive East and the second will be located at 520 Fair Road, Suite 320 College Plaza, beside 180 Fitness.

According to the GrifoldsPlasma website, Plasma is a vital source material for a number of plasma-derived medications that treat and prevent life-threatening diseases, illnesses and conditions. Plasma can’t be created in a laboratory or synthetically produced. Compassionate donors donating their plasma make these medications possible.

Patients around the world need and value donors. Through plasma donations others have a chance for a more productive and healthier lives.

Rates may vary, but on average you can earn up to $400* a month providing the plasma used to help make life-saving medicines.
