Please consider donating blood to help save someone else’s life.  Who knows…. it could be you or someone you know whose life depends on donated blood.


Benefits of Donating

  • It feels great to donate!
  • You get free juice and delicious Keebler® cookies.
  • It’s something you can spare – most people have blood to spare... yet, there is still not enough to go around.
  • You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed – most people don’t think they’ll ever need blood, but many do.
  • You will be someone’s hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.

Facts about blood needs

  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
  • A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S.
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O.
  • The blood used in an emergency is already on the shelves before the event occurs.
  • Sickle cell disease affects more than 70,000 people in the U.S. About 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year. Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives.
  • More than 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.
  • A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood.
