The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. To fulfill the needs of the american people for the safest, most reliable and cost-effective blood services through voluntary donations. Volunteers play a vital role in achieving this mission.
The American Red Cross was founded over 100 years ago by Clara Barton with the purpose of relieving human suffering. Today the nonprofit organization relies on the support of volunteer staff, who outnumber paid staff 94 to 1, to continue its humanitarian work. Saving lives by providing safe blood products to hospitals is just one of the many ways in which the Red Cross continues to meet the needs of the community.

Blood donation has saved my daughter’s life twice . Most of our family members and friends who witnessed the turn of events with available blood products to save her life will not hesitate to be referred .
I Like working on a Blood drive in a community I grew up in. I enjoyed meeting the the staffers of The American Red Cross Greater Chesapeake & Potomac Blood Region. I Hope to have more ordered assignments with that Washington Group.
Thank them and you for this.
Bye hope to see you soon.
