Why do organizations host Red Cross blood drives? Hosting a drive ties up their space, uses their resources and may even result in temporary disruption to their staff and organizational function. So why do they do it?
Approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the United States. Where does all of this blood go?
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.
The American Red Cross is increasing their presence with blood drives being scheduled more frequently in West Sedona and the VOC.
