      Hi Cait,

      Although at this time, there doesn’t appear to be any national or regional blood plasma donation centers in Connecticut, you may be able to find local centers near you by contacting the American Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS.

Just click on the link that says “Find a donation center near you” for any of the organizations that you’re interested in, and you’ll be able to find out whether there are any donation centers for that agency in your area. Once you’ve found a local donation center, you can use the provided phone number for that location to contact the center if you have specific questions. I hope this helps!
