According to the US Food & Drug Administration, “Every two seconds, a patient needs a blood transfusion.”
The number of blood donations has been dramatically reduced due to the implementation of social distancing and the cancellation of blood drives.
Donating blood is safe and takes only a little of your time. At many blood donation centers, those who are interested in donating can make an appointment to minimize the time it takes to donate blood. Centers can arrange to call a donor’s mobile phone when they’re ready for the donor to come in.
Special offer from our partners at Amazon: To thank you for coming to give blood Aug. 1-Sept. 3, we’ll send you a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card* by email. *Restrictions apply, see amazon.com/gc-legal. Terms and conditions apply; visit rcblood.org/together
