How to Save a Life

Woman donating blood.

Looking for a way to help others? Donating blood is an easy way to make a difference.

Blood donation is always needed since blood can only be stored for a limited time. Regular donations from healthy people ensure there is a supply of blood for those who need it. Donated blood is used in surgeries, cancer treatments, chronic diseases, and emergency injuries. Whole blood, red cells, platelets, and plasma can all help someone in need.

Who might benefit from your blood donation?

  • Cancer patients
  • Trauma patients
  • Sickle cell patients
  • Burn patients
  • People with chronic diseases

No matter your blood type, your donation can be helpful! According to the Red Cross, someone in the U.S. needs blood every two seconds. Click HERE for information on donation eligibility criteria.
