Mosquitoes Don’t Deserve a Drop: Orkin and the American Red Cross Partner to Boost Nation’s Blood Supply

Orkin donates $250,000 to the American Red Cross and hosts five blood drives across the United States to encourage life-saving donations

ATLANTA (May 1, 2023) – For the fourth consecutive year, Orkin and the American Red Cross present the Mosquitoes Don’t Deserve a Drop campaign, an initiative aiming to bring awareness to the importance of maintaining the country’s blood supply and protecting people against the public health threats of mosquitoes. Beginning Wednesday, May 3, in Los Angeles, the Mosquitoes Don’t Deserve a Drop campaign will host five blood drives across the country:

  • Los Angeles: Westfield Fashion Square Sherman Oaks Mall Community Room on Wednesday, May 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • Atlanta: Red Cross Atlanta HQ on Monday, May 22, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Chicago: Palos Heights Christian Reformed Church on May 25, noon to 5 p.m.

  • Washington, D.C.: Red Cross National Headquarters Hall of Service on Friday, June 2, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Dallas: Orkin’s Carrollton Branch (3330 Keller Springs Rd., Suite 250) on Tuesday, June 6, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In addition, for every new mosquito control service sold from May 22 to June 30, 2023, Orkin will donate $25 to the Red Cross, up to $250,000.

Mosquitoes are one of the world’s greatest public health threats. They carry vector-borne diseases such as West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Zika, dangers that apply to both humans and pets. Orkin is committed to educating the public on the risks associated with these blood-sucking pests, and more importantly, eliminating them from yards across the country.

“Orkin is proud to support the American Red Cross,” said Orkin President Patrick Chrzanowski. “We look forward to another successful year collecting donations and are grateful to our employees and customers for their life-saving contributions.”

During the summer months, it can be challenging to maintain an adequate blood supply. To help ensure the Red Cross shelves stay stocked with lifesaving blood, donation awareness activities like the Mosquitoes Don’t Deserve a Drop campaign are crucial.  

“We are so grateful to grow our partnership with Orkin this year,” said Kamenna Lee, Vice President of Marketing and Direct to Donor Recruitment with the American Red Cross. “The Red Cross is thankful for Orkin’s continued support hosting blood drives and their generous donation, helping us provide lifesaving blood whenever and wherever its needed.”

Since 2020, Orkin has supported the Red Cross through blood donations and monetary support. At the completion of our 2023 campaign, Orkin will have donated $620,000 to the Red Cross and is now established as a national partner. For more information on this partnership, please visit
