You're Invited to SAVE A LIFE
The American Red Cross supplies about one-half of all the blood products used in this country. While it's estimated that 95% of us will need blood or a blood product during our lifetime, only 5% of eligible people actually donate.
Fun Facts about Blood:
If you begin giving blood at the age of 17 and donate every 56 days until you reach the age of 76, you will donate about 48 gallons of blood.
There is no upper age limit for giving blood.
Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. receives a blood transfusion.
Women receive 56% of the blood transfused; men use 44%.
The average adult body has 10-12 units of blood.
