Assist with blood drives in your area.
The American Red Cross collects nearly six million units of blood each year and provides about one half of the nation's blood supply, one quarter of tissue for transplants, and 15 percent of plasma derivatives. In some cases as many as five persons can be helped by one pint of donated blood, as it is reduced to components such as platlets, plasma or red cells needed by persons in treatment for cancer, leukemia, burns or organ transplants.
Volunters assist at blood drives by registering donors, serving refreshments and delivering blood to hospitals and labs for processing.
