Be a Hero - Give Blood

2 men in red outfits

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.
We rely on healthy, volunteer blood donors for our patients. Blood cannot be manufactured and while 38% of the population is eligible to donate, only about 2% actually do.

It takes all types to save all lives.
Blood has a short shelf life so the need is consistent. Donating blood helps make sure blood is on the shelf for others, as well as for you.
