Red Cross- Help us make our blood drives feel safe and our donors right at home!
American Red Cross
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation. The Red Cross holds about 500 blood drives every day. We need volunteers like you to make these blood drives a success.
