We hope to have another successful drive since the need for blood is so great. Here are some quick facts about blood donation:
-every 2 seconds in the US, someone needs blood
-just one blood donation can help up to 3 patients
-less than 38% of the population is eligible to donate blood and only 3% of those who are eligible actually donate
-Each year, an estimated 6.8 million people in the U.S. donate blood.
-13.6 million whole blood and red blood cells are collected in the U.S. in a year.
Basic donation qualifications:
- Donation frequency: Every 56 days
- You must be in good health and feeling well
- You must be at least 16 years old in most states
- You must weigh at least 110 lbs
Hope to see you on January 18th!
