Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the
U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to
the Red Cross.
“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a
supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than
knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”
