Seasons change but the need remains constant

Thank goodness we can finally wave goodbye to a record breaking summer - record breaking because of the triple digit heat across the country, devastating fires in Texas and a hurricane that hit just about the entire east coast. While the merciless heat is gone and a new season approaches, the need for life-saving blood remains constant. Every TWO seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. Think about that statement. What can you do in two seconds? Snap your finger, yawn or wave goodbye to summer? In that time, someone needed a blood transfusion.

So, how does the Red Cross make sure blood is available for that patient? By only using what you graciously donate because blood cannot be purchased or manufactured. You can see why even coming to give blood makes you a hero in the eyes of patients, their family and friends and the Red Cross. Come save a life with us this fall.
