Celebrate National Blood Donor Month
The Season of Giving Continues
Written by: Kathleen Mundie, Red Cross VolunteerDid you know that one pint of blood can save up to three lives?
The American Red Cross is saluting all of its blood and platelet donors for their life-giving contributions to ill patients. Blood and platelet donors have helped supply community and military hospitals with the blood they need for transfusions, cancer care, and other treatments. We commend our donors for their service and encourage the whole community to contribute lifesaving resources.
It is crucial that the community at large comprehend the importance of donating blood. Hospitals are always in need of all types of blood, especially type O negative, A negative, and B negative. That is because every two seconds someone in the US needs blood. To learn more about all blood types and about what happened to donated blood, visit RedCrossBlood.org.
