Did you know...every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a lifesaving blood transfusion? The Red Cross relies on volunteer donors for the 13,000+ blood donations needed every day to support patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide.
Historically, blood and platelet donations decline during the summer months, making drives like this one so critical. Locally in the Penn-Jersey and Northeast Pennsylvania Blood Services Regions, the Red Cross must collect about 800 pints of blood every day to meet the needs of patients.
